Earlier this month the University of Minnesota, Morris launched its $21 million A model for living and learning campaign. Today the campus premieres a video celebrating campaign priorities and progress.

UMM intends to raise $21 million to invest in:

  • Student experiences
  • Faculty leaders
  • Historic facilities
  • Future of the region

Successful completion of the campaign will distinguish the Morris campus as a model for living and learning.

As the campaign enters its public phase, Chief Development Officer Susan Schmidgall is pleased to report UMM is more than halfway toward its $21 million goal. The impact of these gifts, she says, is the most exciting aspect of the campaign's progress.

"The impact of campaign giving to-date is the most important aspect of our progress: more than 100 new scholarships; our first-ever endowed professorship; a new history center for the library and an outdoor sculpture for the campus; and, our new EcoStation, which will become a research platform for the benefit of all," she says. "This is an exciting time for UMM! We thank you for your support."

A model for living and learning: the campaign for the University of Minnesota, Morris is part of the University of Minnesota's largest fundraising effort to date, Driven: The University of Minnesota Campaign. To learn more and to watch the video, visit
