All About Destination Discovery

The previously held Destination Discovery: St. Paul in-person event in April 2019 showcased programs and accomplishments of the St. Paul campus community over an afternoon of taste testing ice cream, meeting Goldy, hearing live music, and learning about the researchers and student groups that are active and engaged each and every day.

Due to COVID-19 and the ongoing social injustices around the world, we decided to shine a light on lesser known individuals, projects, stories, and events which have shaped our campus, both past and present, by launching this website.

The goal of this project is to highlight these lesser known stories and show the campus, community, University, and hopefully even beyond, that we, as a community, value these contributions just as much as the headline grabbing and often-celebrated accomplishments that the general public are more aware of.

If we are missing something, we encourage you to reach out and let us know.

Destination Discovery: St. Paul is a project that was imagined and brought to fruition through a collaboration of colleges, departments, units, and individuals with the goal of bringing more awareness to the amazing resources and activities the St. Paul campus has to offer to both the University community, as well as the larger community as a whole.

Land Acknowledgment Statement

We acknowledge that the University of Minnesota Twin Cities is built within the traditional homelands of the Dakota people. It is important to acknowledge the peoples on whose land we live, learn, and work as we seek to improve and strengthen our relations with our tribal nations. We also acknowledge that words are not enough. We must ensure that our institution provides support, resources, and programs that increase access to all aspects of higher education for our American Indian students, staff, faculty, and community members.
