Design Justice Collective

The Collective is an intentional group of individuals who represent the work that is already happening within our college. Initiatives include, but are not limited to, the current Diversity Committee, Architecture’s Race and Space Working Group, College of Design Book Club, College of Design Ambassadors, College of Design Summer Camp, Study Abroad, and the BIPOC Student Design Collective. We will find ways to collectively support the work through research and community-engaged scholarship.

Land Acknowledgement

The University of Minnesota Twin Cities is located on traditional, ancestral, and contemporary lands of Indigenous people. The University resides on Dakota land ceded in the Treaties of 1837 and 1851. The College of Design acknowledges this place has a complex and layered history. This land acknowledgment is one of the ways in which we work to educate the campus and community about this land and our relationships with it and each other. The College of Design is committed to ongoing efforts to recognize, support, and advocate for American Indian Nations and peoples.
