Clovis, CA (PRWEB) February 14, 2010
The new Fairfield Inn & Suites in Clovis, a hotel near Yosemite National Park, is happy to welcome the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities, also known as CUMU, to the Fresno/Clovis area.
The Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities was started almost 20 years ago when leaders of metropolitan and urban universities came together in the name of future education, not only at the university level, but also at the community level. The Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities was formed because Universities in metropolitan and urban areas realized that they could reach a broader audience beyond those who are on their campuses. By banding together, they were able to serve their vast communities and regions. The Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities reaches out to the public through journals, conferences, research projects as well as many other networking opportunities.
Fairfield Inn and Suites, like the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities, also realized they are able to reach more people than those who walk in the door of the Clovis hotel. By giving back to the community and surrounding areas, the Clovis hotel is able to reach a much broader group of people. Fairfield Inn and Suites is proud to be a part of this year’s Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities conference. As one of the host hotels for this event being held in the Fresno/Clovis area, the hotel is excited to assist this year’s host University, Fresno State in any way possible as they host the 16th annual conference in October 2010. Felicity Garland, Operations Manager of the Clovis hotel, says, “We are proud to offer our support to the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities as well as Fresno State University. I am very excited to offer my support to any event that will help benefit the local area.”
Since it opened in January of 2009, the hotel and conference center near Fresno has welcomed visitors with a complimentary hot breakfast and ensured that its modern, comfortable rooms featuring the luxurious “Green Tea Bedding Package” are prepared to be a pleasant and relaxing home away from home. The hotel is 2-4 miles from all sporting events in Clovis and is located in the safest area of the county. Fairfield Inn & Suites continues to provide, and raise, the standards of excellence for which Marriott properties are known and has become a standout among hotels near the Fresno Airport. Fairfield Inn and Suites Clovis, Ca. is currently accepting reservations for this event. For more information on the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities please see their website:
