Strategic Direction Plan, 2021–2024
As the organization of choice for urban and metropolitan universities, this three-year plan builds upon CUMU’s existing strengths, while incorporating adaptations necessary to support the changing needs of our students, institutions, and cities. During a time of increased resource constraints for higher education, it will be essential that CUMU not only remain affordable but accessible. To accomplish this, all members will need to step up as contributors, conveners, participants, and champions.
The following commitments guide this strategic plan and are incorporated across and within each priority:
- Centering anti-racism, equity, and inclusion
- Driving innovation
- Deepening engagement and partnerships
