At present there are ninety- five (95) members from twenty (20) countries. There are  three categories of Membership;

 Honorary, Associate and Full.

Honorary Membership is conferred upon an organization, institution or individual who the Association considers to have given outstanding services to education, particularly at the tertiary Level.  Mrs Norma Holder, Mrs Elvris Hewitt-Buckle, Dr. Desmond Broomes and Rev. Dr. Noel Titus were the most recent to be inducted into this category.  There are at present 11 Honorary Members.

Associate Membership is open to organizations and other institutions which have responsibilities related to tertiary education regionally, territorially and extra-regionally.  ACTI currently has 19 Associate Members.

Full Membership is open to tertiary institutions which are designed to provide

post-secondary education and training leading to a Certificate, a Diploma or a degree.  There are 65 Full Members currently active.

ACTI’s Vision is to be the ‘catalyst’ for  networking tertiary institutions, focusing on the effectiveness, relevance and quality of tertiary education in the region. The Association continues to play a critical role within the tertiary education sector of the region and speaks effectively on behalf of its members, as it charts a new direction for tertiary education in the region. Having been granted Observer Status on Council for Human and Social Development (COSHOD), it is now able to impact the highest decision making level within the Caribbean.
