MHC is committed to providing a safe, clean, and healthy environment for our employees and customers. Our Commitment to Guest Safety outlines how we are doing this.
We believe keeping everyone safe is a shared responsibility. Review and share our Client Commitment with your attendees prior to your event to ensure public health and safety.
The building is also home to the offices of the Minnesota Humanities Center (MHC), a statewide nonprofit that envisions a just society that is connected, curious, and compassionate. Our building hosts many educational and community events that complement our programmatic work as it reinforces the MHC as a place where people gather, strengthen connections, and participate in meaningful dialogues.
