CUMU’s journal, Metropolitan Universities (MUJ), is among the leading resources for applied research on the role of universities and other anchor institutions in promoting the advancement of education and supporting positive change in urban and metropolitan areas. CUMU members receive 10 print copies of each issue of Metropolitan Universities and exclusive access to the CUMU Members Community.
Additionally, the Coalition publishes aggregated impact studies and reports that demonstrate the value of our institutions and partnerships. The studies provide members with a baseline to assess and evaluate their own progress in areas such as economic and workforce development, technology transfer, college preparedness, etc.
LSUS demonstrates its commitment to its community through the Community Service Initiative. The University maintains an updated list of service opportunities, ongoing projects, and resources for community engagement and environmental sustainability. Check out their blog!
