Union Park District Council is home to two universities, the University of St. Thomas and Concordia University. Macalester College borders Union Park on our southern edge (Summit Avenue) and many Macalester students live in our neighborhood.
The Union Park District Council is a long time collaborator with all three schools and reserves a seat for each of them to be represented on the board. You can find out who currently represents each school on our board here.
Each year our District Council hosts one or more Macalester work study and/or research interns. Currently we are pleased to host Troy Ikeda and Fiona Odum who are currently working on renters issues and the Allianz Stadium Community Benefits Agreement respectively.
