2015 CUMU Annual Conference Request for Proposals


The 21st annual CUMU conference, hosted by the University of Nebraska at Omaha will feature the theme Love of Place: The Metropolitan University Advantage. Metropolitan universities share a “love of place”. This conference celebrates university and community collaborations. Through reciprocal relationships, metropolitan universities provide students unique and enriching educational experiences while contributing to building and strengthening the community. Conference participants can explore new strategies for sustaining partnerships and inspiring future successes by examining the symbiotic relationship between university and their love of place.


CUMU is seeking proposals for panel, paper, roundtable, and poster presentations that foster discussion, illustrate best practices, and advance the scholarship of engagement.
