CUMU MEMBERS   Open to individuals from CUMU member institutions only, including faculty, staff, students, and community partners. Check to see if your campus is a CUMU member.

OPEN TO ALL   Open to CUMU members and non-members alike. We welcome you to participate and to invite anyone in your network who may be interested in joining us.

LEARNING   These programs invite attendees to participate in a way that works best for them. Sessions may include a chat or poll, but do not require participants to keep their cameras on or work in groups. Examples: webinars and pre-recorded, on-demand content.

CONNECTING   These programs focus on meaningful networking opportunities. Attendees are expected to have cameras on to engage in group discussion or in breakout rooms. Sessions often include a collaborative online document or whiteboard to capture the group’s ideas. Examples: CUMU Huddles and Community Conversations

COLLABORATING   These programs are our most interactive and require full engagement. They require an application and/or individual preparation prior to participation and focus on knowledge/skills building and producing a product. Examples: Anchor Learning Network and member-only workshops
