Welcome Letter from Conference Sponsor BridgeEDU

Greetings, CUMU Participants!

BridgeEdU is honored to serve as a sponsor for this year’s annual convening of the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities (CUMU)!

As a company dedicated to increasing retention and graduation rates alongside our partner universities, we look forward to building new relationships and engaging with professionals and institutions equally dedicated to increasing student success in higher education. This is an opportunity to discuss the most pressing issues in higher education, and to explore the ways that BridgeEdU can help.

Throughout the course of the CUMU conference, there will be several opportunities to meet and engage with our team. To start, I am honored to have the opportunity to share some thoughts with you during the opening plenary on Monday morning. Later that morning, I will join BridgeEdU Vice President, Dr. Debora Johnson-Ross, to present a breakout session,

“Partnering with Universities: Pathways to Sustainable Academic Momentum”, at 11:15 a.m., in Room 5. Please join us then to discuss the challenges facing many urban students, particularly those in need of developmental course work and specifically how BridgeEdU mitigates those challenges. We will present our innovative public/private partnership designed to address these obstacles and how BridgeEdU is uniquely positioned and prepared to provide a thoughtful and effective solution.

In addition to these scheduled events, we will be present throughout the conference and we hope to meet with many of you one-on-one to discuss the ways in which our visionary approach can specifically address your needs. To learn more about BridgeEdU, please visit our new website!

I am honored and excited to share this opportunity with you and so many other incredible thought leaders in the education space. See you in D.C. at the 2016 Annual CUMU Conference.
