Urban and Regional Partnerships for Civic Learning and Student Success

Posted by Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities on August 24, 2015


Mini-Grant Request Deadline: September 30, 2015

Send submissions to rezzo@compact.org

Take advantage of CUMU’s latest collaboration with Campus Compact, Education Commission of the States, and Generation Citizen as we launch the Urban and Regional Partnerships for Civic Learning and Student Success Partnership Initiative.

More About the Initiative

The initiative is grounded in the understanding that civic learning is both intrinsically important and is a powerful way to deepen students’ engagement in their own education, thereby promoting their overall success. The initiative is a team-based approach designed to support local education partnerships through an Action Summit, taking place on November 18th in Baltimore, and complementary learning communities.

Apply for Mini-Grants

To enable participation in the Summit by broad-based urban and regional teams, the consortium is making available small grants to cover participants’ travel and lodging expenses. While the applicants for these grants will be institutions of higher education, funds will be used to cover the expenses of all participants, particularly those who cannot access institutional or organizational funds for this purpose.

Mini-grant applications are due by September 30, 2015 and must contain the following information:

  • Project Lead at applicant institution
  • Team members and rationales for participation
  • Motivation for participation
  • Letters of commitment from CEOs
