Higher education employees work at one of Colorado’s many higher education institutions, including community and technical colleges as well as private and public colleges and universities. This includes a variety of roles including adjunct faculty to program coordinators.
CEA membership empowers educators of all backgrounds to come together and have a say in our classrooms, schools, and workplaces. Joining together in a strong union gives us the power in numbers to advocate for our professions with elected officials and other decision makers.
In addition, whether it’s access to legal services or discounts on shopping and travel or savings on home and car insurance, membership in the union provides a range of tangible benefits.

Close to retirement?
If you are not retired, but at least 45 years old, you are eligible to join as a Pre-Retired Life member. This is the best, easiest and most affordable way to begin your membership as a retired educator. Learn more about our Pre-Retired membership.
Remember, if you have any NEA member benefits, you must maintain a membership when you retire.
Questions about joining?
You can contact our CEA Membership team to determine your eligibility and for any other questions you have.
We hope you will join the thousands of Colorado educators who work together through our local, state and national association to help every student thrive.
