In Metropolitan Universities, the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities’ (CUMU) quarterly online journal, Joanie Friedman, executive director of civic leadership in the Office of Civic Engagement, tells the story of how UChicago came to establish the Civic Leadership Academy.

The paper is based on Joanie's presentation at the 2018 CUMU Annual Conference in Chicago.
