A Community that Cares

At UMN Morris, we believe that living and learning within a community that cares is vital to your success at college. Here you’ll find a culture of caring and support throughout the entire campus. From the staff to the faculty to the chancellor—even visiting alumni—everyone is willing to help you thrive. 

You’ll be part of a close-knit community that supports your intellectual growth, as well as your personal wellbeing. From academics and student life to mental and physical health, you’ll have access to many student programs and support services, along with multiple opportunities to network with alumni.

Our caring community extends beyond campus. Our Clifford J. Benson Center for Community Partnerships is dedicated to creating and maintaining broader community connections through student outreach. You'll be able to connect with local residents and businesses in many different ways, like teaching ESL classes to local immigrants, doing research to help a nonprofit develop its strategic plan, or serving as a member of a local board of directors.
