This is the first year that CUMU has officially called for proposals focusing on the role of colleges and universities as anchor institutions. We are very pleased to have 65 presenters submit proposals on anchor and economic development. It is clear that there is a growing movement in higher education to reimagine the role our institutions can play in the communities we call home.  To support this growing interest in anchor institution work, CUMU has partnered with The Democracy Collaborative, one of the premier organizations supporting anchor institutions to better direct their economic and intellectual power to build reciprocal and symbiotic relationships with local communities through inclusive hiring, investment and  procurement strategies to name a few. MORE INFO
