After nearly four decades of residence in the University of Minnesota’s Pattee Hall, the Institute on Community Integration, publisher of Impact, is moving to the new Masonic Institute for the Developing Brain, 2025 E. River Parkway, Minneapolis. Under a partnership between the University of Minnesota Medical School and the College of Education and Human Development, MIDB clinicians and investigators will focus on autism, cognitive development, and other issues typically discovered in childhood that have lifelong implications. ICI’s focus remains on work resulting in communities that are inclusive and where persons with disabilities, and those receiving educational supports, are included, belong, and have valued roles throughout their lives. The 116,000-square-foot space, designed with art murals and materials that evoke its natural setting along the Mississippi River, opens November 1.
