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.
