In 2018, the CUMU Annual Conference sold out with a record 450 attendees representing 90+ institutions and organizations. If this year’s call for proposals is any indication (200+ proposals submitted), we anticipate another sold out conference!

Join CUMU for the 2019 CUMU Annual ConferenceAll In: The Urban Mission. This year we will look at the role higher education plays in creating significant, equitable outcomes in collaboration with the communities they serve. The annual conference will ask attendees to reflect broadly and specifically on how the urban mission can be fully integrated from real estate assets to college readiness pipeline programs and into their operations, structure, partnerships and academic objectives.
