The Fargo-Moorhead community offers a vibrant college atmosphere.
Minnesota State University Moorhead is an opportunity-rich learning community where students are empowered to reach their highest potential academically and personally. Exceptional faculty teach, advise and mentor, engaging students in collaborative scholarly research and creative projects that provide the experience to excel professionally and to be accepted into competitive graduate and professional programs. MSUM offers 76 majors and more than 170 emphases, along with 125+ student organizations, laying the foundation for a robust intellectual community and an active student life.
A plan presented to the Minnesota State University Moorhead Faculty Association Dec. 5, 2013 outlines additional steps the university can take to avoid a projected $8 million deficit in 2016 and align resources with the University’s new strategic plan. Within the plan, five low enrollment majors would be phased out and some academic departments merged. The plan would result in 16 fewer temporary faculty and six fewer tenured or tenure-track faculty, with the exact number depending on how many faculty accept a second round of early separation incentives. The plan would save $3 million.
