The Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities (CUMU) held elections for the 2022 - 2024 executive committee on October 25, 2022, during the CUMU presidents’ council meeting. Saint Paul College President Deidra Peaslee was elected to serve as a member of this committee.
Executive committee members are nominated and elected by peers from CUMU member institutions. Each has demonstrated a commitment to the CUMU mission of promoting and enhancing urban and metropolitan universities.
Members of the executive committee are presidents and chancellors of
CUMU member institutions and are elected to serve two-year terms in their respective positions.
As an institution with a vision of advancing racial equity, enriching community vibrancy and inspiring students to reach their full potential, the urban location of Saint Paul College is woven into the fabric of the institution. Given CUMU’s focus on helping colleges to leverage campus resources to benefit the community, I am honored to serve on the board to expand this work to more fully include urban community colleges.
