University District Initiative

Engagement between the community and the University comes in many forms and offers opportunities for students, faculty, and staff of the University to work in partnership with the surrounding communities.

The University District Initiative aims to develop strategies with the goal of strengthening community-University relationships and offering systematic ways for community members, students, faculty, and staff to access and share information. This place-based initiative focuses on the neighborhoods directly adjacent to the University's Minneapolis campus.

Intiative coordinators are currently hosting a series a meetings between University faculty and community leaders interested in collaborating on mutually-beneficial research, courses, and projects.
