"With the number of ways I have not had to reinvent the wheel, CUPA-HR has saved me a ton of time.”
– Kartha Heinz, Director of Human Resources, The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology

Everyone likes to save time and money. With a CUPA-HR membership, you can do both!

Because we’re halfway through our regular membership year, which ends June 30, 2022, you can now join CUPA-HR at a discounted price.

When your institution joins by February 28, you and an unlimited number of your colleagues will receive full access to numerous benefits and resources at half the price of regular membership. By becoming a member of CUPA-HR, you’ll be able to:

  • Make more informed decisions, understand compensation trends or compare your campus positions to others across the country with a complimentary copy of the Administrators in Higher Education Annual Report (a $425 value!).
  • Save time and launch your next project faster with ready-made templates, how-to guidance or sample job descriptions.
  • Expand your team’s knowledge on topics specific to higher ed HR with free access to e-learning courses, educational videos and webinars.
  • Ask questions, share your knowledge, find support or make connections with a community of higher ed HR professionals and other higher ed leaders both virtually and in-person.
