Twin Cities Diverse Communities Directory

This directory was developed by the University of Minnesota Graduate School Diversity Office  as a courtesy to inform University students, staff and faculty about resources and services within the Twin Cities area.  The directory can be viewed by major category or the primary community served. This is not intended to be a complete list but can be a starting point, especially for individuals who are new to the Twin Cities area. The descriptions provided are from the organization's website. The University of Minnesota does not endorse any of the resources or services listed in the directory that are external to the University.
