2018 CUMU Annual Conference: Partnering for Equity

Posted on May 14, 2018

In 2017, the CUMU Annual Conference sold out. A record 400 attendees representing 80+ colleges and universities and 40+ partner organizations convened in Denver.

If this year’s call for proposals is any indication, we anticipate another sold out conference!

Join CUMU for the 2018 CUMU Annual Conference: Partnering for Equity. From the birthplace of community organizing, this year’s conference challenges each of us to reflect on the changing role of our urban-serving institutions in tackling major themes through an equity lens.

  • Engaging Presentations—Six presentation formats create more opportunities to have meaningful conversations on important topics.
  • Community Experiences—Join our local members on bus tours of the campuses, neighborhoods, and organizations that are leading change in Chicago.
  • The Location—The historic Drake Hotel and the Windy City serve as a stimulating backdrop to make new connections and learn from other CUMU members.
