The Center for the Study of Upper Midwestern Cultures and the Max Kade Institute for German-American Studies are sibling organizations committed to the languages and cultures of the region's peoples. The Max Kade focuses primarily on German-American immigration, history, culture, and language, while the Center for the Study of Upper Midwestern Cultures is concerned with all of the region's cultural groups. Both units foster research and the preservation of archival collections, while producing educational and outreach programs for a broad public audience. They also assist community groups, classrooms, and scholars with projects.
