Metropolitan Universities journal (MUJ) is the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities’ quarterly online journal. First published in 1990, the journal disseminates scholarship and research relevant to urban and metropolitan universities. Articles amplify the mission of CUMU by reinforcing the value of place-based institutions and illuminating our collective work of supporting the changing needs of our students, institutions, and cities. Readership includes those working to address issues facing modern universities and the communities they serve. Authors with diverse institutional and professional perspectives present research on the best practices and applications of theory in each issue.
