Vol 30, No 4: The Future of Urban and Metropolitan Universities

In celebration of CUMU’s 30th anniversary, the latest issue of Metropolitan Universities journal, 30.4 ‘The Future of Urban and Metropolitan Universities,’ invited past and present presidents and chancellors to share their visions for the future of higher education. As leaders in higher education and past and present members of the CUMU Executive Committee, they provide important perspectives on the future impact of the urban and metropolitan location on institutional mission; the nature, needs and interests of students; and social and economic responsibility. Authors share innovative initiatives and approaches to research and teaching that will address these critical issues.
