Membership in the United Nations Academic Impact is open to all institutions of higher education granting degrees or their equivalent, as well as bodies whose substantive responsibilities relate to the conduct of research.
The formal enrollment of academic institutions in the United Nations Academic Impact must be approved by their Chief Executive Officers and processed through the online enrollment form.
Enrolment applications are reviewed by the United Nations Academic Impact Team, who, after approval, notifies the institutions by email.
The list of UNAI members is updated on a regular basis.
UNAI members are expected to undertake one new activity each year, to actively address at least one of the ten basic principles of the United Nations Academic Impact.
UNAI members are requested to display prominently their UNAI affiliation through the use of the UNAI Member and UNAI In Action logos.
