Projects, Programs, and Partnerships

A major part of UROC’s mission and budget is dedicated to providing an environment for initiating and nurturing collaborative work between many different parts of the University and North Minneapolis community. This involves operating an efficient and welcoming facility for both large and small projects, and may involve providing advice and support on strategies for engaging residents.

Many of the projects and programs taking place at UROC are ongoing, fully-staffed projects, while others are temporary grant-funded projects or monthly conversations. All projects at UROC are conducted through partnership between community members and staff, faculty, and students from various University of Minnesota colleges including University of Minnesota Extension.
