To be eligible for membership, a program or center must demonstrate a substantial allocation of resources and programming to the programmatic area(s), including:
(1) A designated faculty or staff position which has primary responsibility to direct programmatic activities. The title and exact scope and type of responsibilities may vary, and some responsibility can be shared among other faculty, staff, or students.
(2) Accountability to and association with the academic division of the school, college, or university (which can include continuing or professional education), rather than some other area, such as student affairs.
(3) Staff support for its activities (no minimum level of staffing is required).
