Held in conjunction with the CUMU Annual Conference, the Action Summit is open to CUMU members and their community partners focused on addressing the challenges and strategies for impactful and successful K-12 + higher education partnerships. The goals of the Action Summit are:
- To focus on today’s prevalent issues in K-12 + higher education partnerships such as barriers and challenges in forming partnerships and improving college readiness and completion.
- To share best practices amongst cities and metro areas across the nation in the area of K-12 + higher education partnerships.
- To bring together university executive teams and their community partners to develop action plans for how they might implement the models, strategies, and best practices discussed during the summit. The summit provides teams with a rare opportunity to work on these issues in a retreat-like format, away from the other competing issues and challenges on campus.
