Relocation Assistance Program

Welcome to the University of Minnesota

RAP provides information on moving companies, housing, child and elder care, school systems, diversity, and community resources. Because University professionals are often part of dual-career couples, RAP offers Dual Career Services to help spouses or partners explore employment options in the Twin Cities and around the state.

Departments conducting employment searches are encouraged to contact RAP for recruitment support, including assistance in recruiting for diversity, housing options, and more. Visit the Hiring Departments page for information.

Job Search Services

RAP offers spouses and partners guidance in a job search, resume/curriculum vitae review, and career counseling. In addition, RAP maintains a list of employment partners for spouse/partner job seekers.

University Traditions

The University of Minnesota was established in 1851, years before Minnesota became an official state of the Union. Since then, the U of M has formed many unique traditions from our marching band, to our team cheer “SKI-U-MAH,” to Goldy the Gopher.

Making Connections

When Daniel Muñoz-Hutchinson's partner got a job offer from the University of Minnesota, he relocated while finishing his dissertation. He was able to use the Upper Midwest Higher Education Relocation Consortium (UMW HERC) website to make connections and start his career in Minnesota.
