In close alignment with the University’s community and civic engagement is its role as an Anchor Institution.
Per the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities (CUMU), an “anchor” institution is rooted in the local community in which it resides – rooted by mission, by invested capital, or by relationships to students, employees, and vendors. Anchor higher education institutions like MSU Denver are critical local engines and mission-driven organizations inextricably linked to the long term well-being of those they serve.
Areas of focus for anchor institutions are:
• Place-based investment
• Land use, housing, and anti-displacement development
• Inclusive local hiring and workforce development
• Inclusive local procurement and construction
• Small business development
