Land Acknowledgement

Lions Gift of Sight acknowledges that the University of Minnesota Twin Cities and University Enterprise Laboratories (our physical home) are built within the traditional homelands of the Dakota people. It is important to acknowledge the peoples on whose land we live, learn, and work as we seek to improve and strengthen our relations with our tribal nations. We also acknowledge that words are not enough. We must ensure that our institution provides support, resources, and programs that increase access to all aspects of higher education for our American Indian students, staff, faculty, and community members.
