Legacy Lived: A Generation of Ernest A. Lynton Award Recipients Advancing the Scholarship of Engagement

In 1990, soon after the founding of CUMU, the first issue of Metropolitan Universities journal was published. It was, as it is today, devoted to the ‘nature and challenges’ of metropolitan universities. Ernest A. Lynton, whose work and dedication to creating effective collaborations between campus, community, and commerce led to the formation of CUMU, served as executive editor. Nearly 30 years later, Lynton’s legacy lives on. This issue highlights the impact of Lynton’s work and how his vision for strong faculty and university engagement expanded views of scholarship and epistemology that carries on through the work of faculty and campuses across the country.
