What Makes MSUM Special

  • Welcome to MSUM  

    Minnesota State University Moorhead is a special place, with a strong sense of community defined by our core values of grit, humility and heart.  These values are embodied by our students, employees, and alumni as we passionately pursue MSUM’s purpose: to transform the world by transforming lives.

    Founded as a normal school, we later became a teachers college and have since grown into a distinctive regional university offering degree and certificate programs at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels.  In keeping with our heritage, we are a teaching university—a place where the faculty-student relationship remains at the heart of the learning process.

    Our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing a learning environment in which students can explore and discover their passions with the ultimate goal of using their unique talents to make our world a better place. 

    I invite you to learn more by exploring our website and all that MSUM offers.  If you like what you see, I invite you to join our university community.  You’ll find your life transformed.
