The Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities (CUMU) announced the launch of the Anchor Learning Network, a three-year partnership with The Democracy Collaborative (TDC), an international research institute dedicated to developing new strategies for a more democratic economy.
The partnership allows participating CUMU member institutions to explore and advance an anchor mission—using their educational and operational place-based assets to advance the well-being of the communities they serve.
Marquette is proud to be one of the 31 CUMU members to commit to the Anchor Learning Network. Through this, the university will advance its mission and strategic plan, Beyond Boundaries, by investing in — and supporting — local communities and economies, advancing racial equity, and reversing legacies of exclusion and disinvestment.
