Why are there Paid & Free options?

Charging a small membership fee for our site pays for basic operating costs; however, we don't want financial concerns to keep out anyone in need of community. If you are able to pay for a membership, we appreciate that greatly. If not, we welcome you, as well.

Want to Pay for Others' Memberships?

Our membership fees are kept low thanks to generous gifts from compassionate people around the world. If you would like to support our mission of providing accessible spaces for difficult conversations in academia, please visit our GoFundMe page.
