Membership that Matters

Cognia members are part of a global community of educators with a shared goal to open pathways of opportunity for all learners. Joining Cognia provides access to powerful tools, resources, and expertise to help educators reach that goal. Membership benefits are magnified by your participation in the Cognia Global Network—made up of more than 36,000 education institutions in 85 countries—introducing you to best practices and insights from around the world.

Three levels of membership offer you choices to best align with your institution’s continuous improvement goals. All memberships include and build on core benefits from our former general membership, with powerful new features to add impact.
