Partnering for Equity: Chicago Conference Issue

Partnering to address wicked problems, increasing access and pathways to success, and intentionally contributing to the economic well-being of our communities are just some of the ways that urban and metropolitan universities are addressing issues of equity. However, as our keynote speaker, Dr. Pauline Lipman, articulated, institutions of higher education have often participated in and even further institutionalized inequity. The 2018 CUMU Annual Conference challenged attendees and presenters to extend their commitment to equity through critical dialogue, stronger collaborations, strengthened infrastructure, increased financial commitments, and strategic planning.
