The Minnesota Design Team (MDT) has been around since 1983. Its multidisciplinary teams have worked with more than 130 rural communities helping them to improve their built environments. Continuing Education Units are available for team visits. Join us each month if you are seeking good fellowship, fun, and an opportunity to do something that makes a difference.
