FAU Joins the Higher Education Anchor Mission Initiative
Florida Atlantic University has been selected as an inaugural member of the Higher Education Anchor Mission Initiative, a national collaboration designed to develop and share new strategies for deploying higher education’s intellectual and place-based resources to enhance the economic and social well being of the communities they serve.
The Higher Education Anchor Mission Initiative is a joint project of the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities (CUMU), a national organization dedicated to connecting urban universities and their partners, and The Democracy Collaborative (TDC), a national research institute developing strategies for a more democratic economy, and is supported by the Annie E. Casey Foundation.
“FAU’s participation in the Higher Education Anchor Mission Initiative will help deepen our existing commitment as a community partner and strengthen our community engagement efforts,” said FAU President John Kelly.
FAU is one of 31 member institutions and is currently the only Florida institution participating in the Higher Education Anchor Mission Initiative.
