Get Involved this Spring

Want to get involved in the Twin Cities, but not sure where to start? The Community Engagement Center has hundreds of partners in a five mile radius of campus. We organize our work around themes (i.e. youth and education, environmental justice, public policy, etc.) and provide transportation and support for students to engage. Learn more at the above link, or come visit us on the third floor of Markim Hall!

Food insecurity is an issue facing students as well as local community members. There are many options for students to supplement their food resources and engage food justice work on and off campus.
