Who's Who: Committees and Contributors

The Historic Preservation Plan has been a concerted effort among many participants. Our Advisory Committee consists of architects, consultants, members of the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities community, the University of Minnesota Morris community, and the City of Morris. Its purpose is to complete guidelines that will inform future development of both buildings and landscape at UMM. The UMM Committee is a group of campus volunteers consisting of professors, administrators and students who advise other details of the effort, from the mapping of campus landscape to putting together literally hundreds of images reflecting the changes the campus has gone through. The Display Committee is working to develop a portable display reflecting the history and changes of the campus. Many other individuals have helped the project along, and we would like to acknowledge the breadth and depth of all contributions and extend our thanks to those individuals.
