Travel Advisory: Light Rail Closures July 11-14

Minneapolis Metro Transit will be conducting maintenance on light rail tracks on the East Bank of the Twin Cities Campus this weekend. 

Key closures include:
Washington Avenue Bridge vehicle lanes in both directions
Washington Avenue from Walnut Street SE to Pleasant Street SE
Pleasant Street SE between Arlington Street SE and Washington Avenue
Oak Street SE at Washington Avenue (Friday only)

Light rail trains will be running, but will not stop at the UofM dropoff site, STARTING at 7pm THURSDAY (July 11). So, you should be able to come to campus via light rail from the airport as long as you arrive BEFORE 7pm on Thursday (July 11). If you are flying in on Friday instead, you can take the blue line from airport to the US bank stadium, and then shuttle buses will be available there that will drop you off on campus: https://www.metrotransit.org/buses-will-replace-metro-blue-and-green-line-trains-july-12-15

You should be able to take the light rail back to the airport on Sunday, but that will involve a shuttle bus that will pick you up within 2 blocks from the Graduate Hotel, and drop you off about 1 block from the blue line (which goes to the airport). We will provide more detailed information regarding the shuttle back to the airport at the SABER meeting. 

Note: The top-level of the Washington Avenue Bridge remains open to non-motorized traffic.

Partnership with the Department of Biology Teaching and Learning at the University of Minnesota

SABER is thrilled to announce a partnership with the Department of Biology Teaching and Learning at the University of Minnesota for the 2024 Annual Meeting, in celebration of BTL's 10th Anniversary

The summer of 2024 marks the 10th anniversary of the Department of Biology Teaching and Learning. It was created in July 2014 as a partnership between the College of Biological Sciences and the College of Education and Human Development, with a mission to discover, apply, and share educational strategies to transform biology education at the undergraduate and graduate levels. BTL’s founding was largely due to the rapid expansion of the DBER field, as evidenced by the founding and growth of SABER itself. As a component of its 10th-anniversary celebration, BTL wants to recognize and support the field that led to its birth. 

BTL will sponsor conference registration and the 2024 annual membership for up to 125 undergraduate and graduate students attending the SABER Annual Meeting. For those students who cannot attend in person, SABER and BTL will provide free student access to the Zoom components of the SABER Annual Meeting upon request. See "Registration Rates" for more information. 

BTL will also host a special panel on the history and future of biology education research. Learn more here.
