The Hennepin County Cohort was created in 2011 to increase the level of productive partnerships between Hennepin County and The University of Minnesota. Members of the Cohort are liaisons within their departments and work to catalyze greater levels of connection in areas that benefit both Hennepin County and the University.
Specifically, Cohort members:
provide information, updates, and access to University resources,
act as the key point of contact with the HUP office, and
support efforts to measure and communicate about results.
