California State Fullerton President Mildred García, along with three other leaders in higher education, was recently appointed to the Executive Committee of the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities (CUMU).

CUMU is an international affiliate organization of universities in large metropolitan areas that share common understanding of their institutional mission and values — to provide leadership in addressing urban problems, through teaching, research and professional service.

"Over the past two years, the coalition's executive committee and headquarters have worked through a strategic planning process and I feel confident these individuals will help us carry out our vision for this organization," said Wendell Pritchett, president of the coalition and chancellor of the Camden campus of Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey.
