Founded by the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities (CUMU), the Anchor Learning Network (ALN) is designed to facilitate a more rapid and effective advancement of the anchor mission within member institutions, in home communities, and across the higher education sector. By leveraging a peer learning framework, ALN members will systematically transform higher education to fully serve its public mission and advance the long-term social, economic, and physical health of our campuses and communities.
While ALN currently includes 33 colleges, Buffalo State was one of the initial six institution cohorts in 2014. As a founding member, Buffalo State has helped build out the Anchor Institution Dashboard which serves as the key framework with which all anchor institutions approach their anchor mission initiatives. In addition, Buffalo State also pioneered several successful community and academic development initiatives such as the Civic & Community Engagement Office (CCE), West Side Promise Neighborhood (WSPN) and the West Side Youth Development Coalition (WSYDC).
