University of Minnesota Duluth


DESCRIPTION

The University of Minnesota Duluth integrates liberal education, research, creative activity, and public engagement and prepares students to thrive as lifelong learners and globally engaged citizens. History Although the University of Minnesota Duluth didn't officially make its appearance until 1947, plans for a college in the Duluth area were first made in the 1890s. The state legislature planned for a teaching school for women (then referred to as a normal school) and in 1895 they announced the formation of the Duluth Normal School.

 

 

In 1921, the Duluth Normal School was renamed to the Duluth State Teachers College or DSTC. The change in status allowed bachelor's degrees and four-year degree programs to be added to the school. In 1929 the school became co-ed, and the first sports teams were instituted, including hockey, football, and basketball. By 1937, the community supported a change from DSTC to a branch campus of the University of Minnesota. In 1947 the DSTC became part of the University of Minnesota system and was again renamed, this time to the University of Minnesota Duluth, or UMD.

 

The Campus Commitment

 

UMD's Proposed Vision for 2020 is to integrate equity, diversity, inclusion, and social justice into all aspects of campus life and learning through an intentional, clear, caring, and restorative manner. In doing so, we create a more just, integrated educational community that celebrates all human difference.

In order to create an environment that is physically and psychologically safe for students, staff, and faculty, we must work to eliminate the structural and interpersonal barriers that limit the opportunities for underrepresented and underserved groups.

We recognize and understand that populations have been marginalized and intentionally excluded from equal opportunities, and that these groups have experienced discriminatory treatment.

We reject hatred and intolerance that harms diverse individuals or groups and threatens the inclusiveness of the UMD environment.

Through our decisions and our behaviors, we will embrace diversity, provide for equitable treatment, and strive for social justice for all students, staff, and faculty who learn, work, and live at UMD.
