Institutional Affiliates

Please note that most IWL affiliates are individual departments or programs within a university, though sometimes the affiliation with IWL is jointly set up by two or more departments or by an overall school or university or consortium. To see who has set up the affiliation at a given university, please check out our the list below, or the Affiliates Map above by hovering over the hotspot you're interested in.

If your specific school, department or program isn’t listed below (even though your university is) you are not an affiliate applicant. If only a university is listed, without mention of specific schools or departments, then anyone at that university is an affiliate applicant. People in non-affiliated departments are welcome to apply to the Institute, but they won’t be given the discounted affiliate rate unless they are included in the list of recommended participants sent to IWL by the institutional affiliate.
