News and Perspectives
"In an effort to connect students from rural areas, a new University of Minnesota initiative is working to strengthen community for these students to connect with one another.
Many students from rural communities say they feel disconnected from others on the Twin Cities campus and don’t feel comfortable in an urban setting. Rural Community Connection, which started this spring, will hold monthly meetings for students to get together, de-stress and provide support."
"The University announced last week that it will partner with YMCA of the Greater Twin Cities to open a new child care facility on East Bank, which is expected to open summer 2021.
The site will be built near Dinkytown on the corner of Fourth Street Southeast and Sixteenth Avenue Southeast and will serve around 150 pre-kindergarten children, including infants. Enrollment priority will be given to faculty, staff and students."
Please join us for at the University's Career Development Network (CDN) Diversity and Inclusion Committee's spring program: "Enhancing Equity: Addressing Fat Discrimination and Its Effects." Please RSVP below. Seats will fill up quickly.
