Minneapolis, known as one of the Twin Cities, is the 46th largest city in the U.S. There are many interesting things to do in the city, from walking tours to museums to boat rides. Meet Minneapolis offers a wealth of information about the city, including self-guided tours and lists of events. For more information and recommendations, visit our Participant Information page.
The Transforming Institutions Conference is committed to providing universal access to our programming and supporting special accommodation requests to the best of our ability. Please check the box on the registration form if you would like a member of the Conference Committee to follow up with you to assist with accommodations that support your needs (e.g. accessible parking space, alternative formats, lactation room). Please note that we will do our best to accommodate your needs, but cannot guarantee we will be able to. Regardless, advanced notice is necessary.
