Project Overview
Work is being done to strengthen existing partnerships and create new opportunities for MNHS to deliver transformative educational experiences to students. ACHF dollars were used to leverage matching dollars from Minneapolis public schools to increase their contract with MNHS for educational programs, such as History Day. St. Cloud State University and Minnesota State University Moorhead also provided matching funds for partnerships that enrich U.S. history instruction with experiences at historic sites and museums. Seven undergraduate student interns in St. Cloud and Moorhead provided History Day mentoring support to area schools. MNHS also expanded its summer enrichment programs by partnering with the Minnesota Institute for Talented Youth for two summer History Day courses, creating a new campus immersion program at Augsburg College, and sustaining two campus immersion experiences for middle school students at the University of Minnesota in partnership with the Athletics Department. The highly successful Summer History Immersion Program served two cohorts of high school students with in-depth academic and college immersion experiences, in partnership with the University of Minnesota.
