About iSchools Membership Levels
iSchools memberships span six levels. All schools are expected to enroll at the highest level in accordance with the size, resources and structural limitations of their schools. Criteria for being recognized as an iSchool are not rigid, but members are expected to have substantial sponsored research activity, engagement in the training of future researchers (usually through an active, research-oriented doctoral program), and a commitment to progress in the information field. The goal of the membership levels is to reduce within-level variations and to make mentorship opportunities easier to establish. Schools are encouraged to move up in the membership hierarchy whenever it is appropriate to do so.

*The Associate category is for schools that are new, or may not yet meet the requirements for other levels.
