International Association of Academicians (IAASSE)

Connecting  Scholars, Scientists and Engineers 


What We Do

Who We Are

Get In Touch

What We Offer


IAASSE started out humbly as an educational awareness group, but then quickly saw the potential for harnessing the power of the internet and social media to raise awareness among research scholars, scientists and engineers to make a difference in our world. 

Originally the brain-child of Tom P.and Kevin R., today IAASSE proudly have a worldwide team of contributing members, creative writers, bloggers, and news junkies. Through the power of activism and the internet, we strive to improve the quality of research and its development for life of ourselves, our peers, and future generations.

The governing body of IAASSE is its Executive Board. It is accountable to the members and has supervision, control and direction of the affairs of the association. It actively pursues the association’s mission, determines its policy within the limits of the law, Bylaws, and Articles of Incorporation. It upholds the IAASSE Code of Ethics and supervises disbursement of the association’s funds. The Executive Board develops the strategic plan and direction for the association under the guidance of the association bylaws approved by the IAASSE membership.


Members on the board of International Association of Academicains take IAASSE forward with varied expertise, strategic leadership skills and a deep understanding of the communication profession.
