Summer Institute

Materials from Census 2020 Summer Institute August 2019 and links to additional census-related resources and organizations

Faculty, students, and staff from campuses across Minnesota met at Metropolitan State University in August of 2019 for the Census 2020 Planning Institute. Over the two-day institute, participants worked to develop curricular materials and institution-wide action plans to educate and mobilize students across campus for the upcoming census.












We were joined both days by staff from the MN State Demographic Center who generously shared their time and fielded numerous questions about the census.
