CUMU Issues a Call for Proposals
The Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities (CUMU) has issued a call for proposals for its 17th Annual Conference, which will be hosted by Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). The conference will focus 'Creating Tomorrow's Future Today,' and runs from Oct. 9 to 11.
The three days of presentations and discussions will explore university/community partnerships that are preparing both to embrace the future.

The conference will provide a forum for students, faculty and administrators to share ideas, experiences and make recommendations concerning the leadership role that metropolitan universities must assume in creating the future.
The deadline to submit proposals is June 6. More details on the conference, including submission guidelines and submission form are available at http://www.cumuonline.org/conference/2011callforproposals.aspxUp to Top
