Celebrating a Year of Purposeful Impact: CLU’s 2023 Partnerships Impact Report

A Year Defined by Purpose and Impact

As we reflect on the year 2023 at CLU, our journey in forging meaningful partnerships is best encapsulated by two words: Purpose and Impact. The partnerships and organizations that we’ve aligned with are not just additions to our network; they are the bedrock of our mission and crucial in broadening our outreach to more students. Our collective efforts are aimed at creating a world enriched by ethical leaders and communities actively engaged in making a difference.

At the heart of our initiatives, mission-aligned partnerships stand as the cornerstone for realizing our vision. Last year, CLU thoughtfully expanded its partnership network to include 60 organizations. These partners are not just aligned with our goals—they live and breathe these values in their daily operations. As we step into 2024, our enthusiasm soars as we plan to further expand our partnership portfolio. We aim to include more organizations that share our mission while branching out into new markets. These efforts include special focus areas like supporting our military-affiliated students and those who are the first in their families to attend college.

Partnership Highlights

Our commitment to forging strong and impactful partnerships has yielded significant milestones in 2023, including:

  • AmeriCorps School of National Service Designation: A testament to our commitment to service and volunteerism, CLU has been recognized as an AmeriCorps School of National Service.
  • Dedicated Enrollment Managers: Partner students now benefit from having designated enrollment managers, ensuring a personalized and seamless academic journey.
  • Articulation Agreements with Community Colleges: Our collaboration with 14 community colleges has created smoother pathways for students transitioning to CLU.
  • Expansion of Partnerships: The addition of 10 new partnerships has broadened our network and impact.
  • Tuition Savings: Our partner students were awarded $87,050 in tuition savings, making education more accessible and affordable.
