Marquette University has been selected as one of 33 Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities to participate in its Higher Education Anchor Mission initiative.
The initiative is a national collaboration aimed at assisting CUMU members to more rapidly and effectively advance an anchor mission strategy within their institutions, higher education and the communities they serve. It is a joint project of CUMU and The Democracy Collaborative, a national research institute developing strategies for a more democratic foundation.
“In keeping with Marquette’s tradition as a Catholic, Jesuit university, this collaboration will enable the university to continue to serve as a strong community partner with other organizations throughout the region,” said Dr. Daniel Bergen, executive director of Marquette’s Office of Community Engagement.
Marquette officials will participate in a peer learning exchange at the 2018 CUMU annual conference in Chicago later this month.
