Illinois Distributed Museum

Join Devin Manley, one of the Illinois Distributed Museum's Spring interns, on a walking tour of campus to highlight cultural and community building innovations from the University of Illinois. Hear about the history of this campus’s multi-ethnic and multi-cultural past as we think critically about the University of Illinois’ role in defining immigration policies, the Civil Rights Movement, and the progression of inclusive academia at both the local and global scale. Follow along as we visit some of the University’s most powerful and life-changing sites that you may walk past every day without even knowing!

This tour will start at the University Archives, located in the Main Library Room 146. We will spend approximately an hour and a half walking to 7 different locations on campus.
