How to Join as a Partner
The institutions who have been admitted to membership in the NMC are all outstanding innovators, committed to pushing the boundaries of teaching, learning and creative expression, and adept in the application of technology. Since the founding of the NMC in 1993, only the most worthy institutions have been invited to join the consortium, and NMC membership denotes an organization deeply committed to quality, excellence in teaching and/or research, and innovation.
If your company believes in these values, and is interested in working with like-minded organizations, you should consider joining this collaborative community of innovators and visionary thinkers.
To begin the process, call the NMC at 512.445.4200 or e-mail us at email@example.com. We'll provide the answers you need to determine if membership in the NMC is right for your company. Or, if you are ready, you can complete our online membership form right now.
As a Partner of the NMC, you will have access to the most distinctive, technologically savvy, and productive colleges and universities in North America - and to a growing number of museums as well. The NMC's membership is often described as higher education in microcosm, as it includes representation from the entire range of institutions - large and small, public and private, research-focused and teaching-focused - and every Carnegie classification.
Any successful partnership means taking the time to learn the goals and interests on both sides. The NMC understands the language of business. We are committed to working with you to understand your needs and mutually determine how your partnership with the NMC can best benefit your business. We know the higher education marketplace, and are very knowledgeable about higher education opportunities. For those companies interested in developing major initiatives for this market, we have considerable skill and experience in building custom projects and programs for our partners.
The NMC is truly unusual among higher education associations because over the years, as we have served colleges and universities, we have always maintained very close ties to the corporate world.
From the beginnings of the NMC in the early 1990s, when John Sculley's vision for new media led to our creation, the mission of the NMC has always included solid partnerships with corporations interested in expanding the bounds of traditional education.
The founding members of the NMC included not only 22 outstanding universities, but also Macromedia, Adobe Systems, Apple Computer, and Sony. The NMC's governance structure ensures the organization maintains strong ties to its partners - one-third of the seats on the board are reserved for its corporate partners, who enjoy the full range of benefits of membership in the NMC.
