Affiliations, Consortia, Exchanges, and Professional Association Membership

Institutional Partners

Amherst has institutional partnerships with several colleges and universities around the world that offer opportunities for students and/or faculty. They are:

Program Affiliations and Consortia

Amherst is a member of study abroad consortia and affiliates with several study abroad providers.

Affiliation often means Amherst students have priority admission over non-affiliate schools, our faculty have an opportunity to contribute to program development and academic oversight, and participate in surveys. 

Professional Association Membership

Amherst College and the Director of the Global Education Office are active members in the professional associations and networks in international education.  Amherst is a member of the Institute of International Education, NAFSA: Association of International Educators and the Forum on Education Abroad.  These non-profit organizations require annual dues that provide members with access to the latest information, standards, and networks within the field. The Forum is recognized by the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission as the standard development organization in education abroad.
