About the University of Minnesota and the Twin Cities
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.
When Daniel Muñoz-Hutchinson's partner got a job offer from the University of Minnesota–Twin Cities, he relocated while finishing up 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.
