A Model for Life-Changing Student Experiences


As a public liberal arts college, the University of Minnesota Morris offers students who believe they can change the world access to a life-changing education. Our residential environment encourages learning at all times, and students have countless chances to get involved and gain real-world skills such as problem-solving, communication, and critical thinking in and out of the classroom.

Morris students demonstrate the greatest percentage of ethnic diversity in the University of Minnesota system, and they stand to gain the most from your generosity: 27 percent are students of color, 37 percent are first-generation, and 40 percent are from rural areas. With support for scholarships, internships, and leadership opportunities, we can empower more of these talented young people to realize their full potential as engaged global citizens.

Your gift will:

  • Provide Opportunity Scholarships to support the continued success of students with financial need
  • Expand meaningful on- and off-campus work opportunities for students through the Work, Engagement, and Liberal Learning program
  • Support formative opportunities like study abroad, undergraduate research, and volunteer learning
