Affiliates and Partnerships

CLIR establishes collaborative relationships and cross-institutional initiatives with organizations that have similar missions in the pursuit of common goals. These relationships take many forms, including Partnerships and Affiliates.



CLIR partners with institutions and organizations and their staff to collaborate on a common project or initiative. Through our partnerships, we are able to expand our reach and engage with wider audiences and practitioners.



As a U.S.-based 501(c)(3) organization, CLIR can serve as a stable fiscal or administrative home for organizations that may not need to be an independent legal entity. Affiliates have their own governance and mission, while CLIR provides integrated services and access to tools, platforms, research, and expertise to reduce costs, create greater efficiencies, and allow affiliates to better serve their constituencies.
