The Office of the President, Office for Public Engagement, Office for Equity and Diversity, and other units systemwide have compiled a list of University of Minnesota-affiliated resources for students, faculty, staff, and community partners to build upon the University's collective efforts during and after the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.
The University's Office of the President has launched "Voice, Art, and Community," a collection of online events and activities across the University's system with community partners that features diverse voices through the arts and humanities.
Join University School of Public Health Associate Professor Rachel Hardeman in a virtual community conversation on what structural racism means for Black, Indigenous, and people of color in the Twin Cities urban areas and how it plays out in our lives. Hardeman is a 2020 UROC Research Agenda grant recipient for her project Operationalizing and Measuring Structural Racism in Minnesota, which aims to explore the measurement of the impact of structural racism in urban communities and document the ways that Black communities have been and are currently systemically disenfranchised.
Three University of Minnesota research teams, chosen by a University-community selection committee, have been awarded UROC Research Agenda grants. The grants aim to stimulate and guide collaborative research, while improving outcomes through robust, long-term University-community partnerships geared toward making meaningful change.
