Blanchard BOD quote

“The urban university has the greatest power to restore the public’s confidence in higher education. Because CUMU brings together urban and metropolitan universities across our nation for discourse, research, and public advocacy, the Coalition has the greatest potential to restore not only local trust in higher education, but national trust as well, by fostering actual rather than merely aspirational impact.”
