Metropolitan Universities (MUJ) is a publication intent on helping your institution stay abreast of cutting-edge topics in higher education. Each issue reports in-depth on theoretical and applied aspects affecting colleges and universities. Authors come from diverse institutional perspectives and include top scholars and administrators who share a wealth of experience and knowledge about best practices and effective strategies that cannot be gained in conference sessions or by reading traditional academic journals.

Metropolitan Universities informs administrators, faculty, and students of the latest ideas, issues, and trends that are challenging and changing all types of institutions. Recent journal themes, for example, have focused on distributed learning, K-16 collaborations, assessment, service learning, and campus-community partnerships. The world of higher education is changing rapidly; Metropolitan Universities Journal keeps you informed of all the latest trends.
