The Community Engagement & Education (CEEd) Hub

The CEEd hub facilitates community engagement with MIDB by connecting the community with cutting-edge clinical trials, and highlighting research, programs, and individual stories to inform our local and national communities of the benefits and services offered at the University of Minnesota. Listening deeply to the needs of the community enables us to shape our work in a way that sparks novel understandings of the brain and more effectively advances crucial policy and advocacy

Aims of the hub

The hub aims to foster bidirectional communication with the community in order to relay the community’s identified gaps and concerns regarding neurodevelopment, in order to mold programs and services offered at MIDB. This will enable us to fast-track interventions to the community, and develop the next generation of underrepresented minorities (URM) leaders in science, technology, engineering, agriculture and mathematics (STEAM).
