The Lealtad-Suzuki Center for Social Justice is located on the first floor of Kagin Commons.
We would like to take a moment to honor the fact that we are on Dakota land. This is the ancestral homeland of the Dakota people who were forcibly exiled from the land because of aggressive and persistent settler colonialism. We make this acknowledgment to honor the Dakota people, ancestors, and descendants, as well as the land itself.
