Posted by Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities on November 21, 2023

The Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities (CUMU) is pleased to announce a new fellowship opportunity for an individual from a CUMU member institution.

CUMU has long focused on the collaboration of urban and metropolitan campuses and their cities, working together to identify, implement, and evaluate innovative strategies to address regional opportunities and challenges. This fellow will lead key initiatives related to measuring and communicating the impact of institutional and/or regional efforts.

About the CUMU Impact Fellow

One CUMU Impact Fellow will be selected for 2024. During the year-long fellowship, the awardee will produce a report on the state of the field and provide leadership on behalf of CUMU membership on various initiatives related to impact, data, and metrics in community engagement and/or regional impact.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Metrics for tracking a campus’ impact as an anchor institution
  • How regional anchor collaborations measure, report, and improve impact
  • Community engagement impact: how data is collected, maintained, analyzed, and communicated
