The North Minneapolis Engagement Zone includes the Minneapolis neighborhoods of Near North and Camden, collectively known as north Minneapolis or the "Northside." The North Minneapolis Enagement Zone seeks to build upon and expand the function and reach of the Urban Research and Outreach-Engagement Center's (UROC) Community Affairs Committee (CAC). This body was a pillar of the University Northside Partnership and was also central to the early planning and formation of UROC. It is part of UROC’s commitment to community connection, transparency and shared visioning. This Engagement Zone seeks to expand CAC's coordination function for greater alignment of University-community work, not only at UROC, but across North Minneapolis.
