USU Summer Meeting
Our summer meeting, the University and the City: Charting a Common Future will be held in Chicago, IL, June 17 and 18 2013
The purpose of the workshop is to collectively do a deep dive into what works on urban campuses to increase access, retention and success for their students. Our goal is to examine the nuts and bolts of our current activities with an eye to improve what we are already doing, understand what’s missing from our individual portfolio of initiatives, and better develop new programs and systems to measure and scale what’s working. Our hope is that attendees return to their campuses ready to roll up their sleeves and apply what they’ve learned.
