The Coalition of Urban Serving Universities (USU) is a network of public urban research universities that:
Represents every region of our country
Educates the urban workforce to serve the areas where they are located
Advocates diversity in the health industry
Collaborates with local leaders to train human capital and engage communities
Helps create area jobs, and economic and social equity for graduates
University presidents created the Coalition to leverage the intellectual capital and economic power of urban universities, thereby improving urban life and America's competitiveness in the global economy.
