Outreach

Commitment to community is at the heart of our mission.

That mission includes

As a public land-grant institution, Morris is a center for education, culture, and research for west central Minnesota and beyond. Our outreach initiatives include:

Center for Small Towns
The Center for Small Towns leverages the University's resources to assist Minnesota's small towns with local issues and opportunities for growth. By working cooperatively, the campus and the region can find new ways of transitioning into the 21st century.
Sustainability
Sustainability is woven into the fabric of our work. Morris has commitments, investments, policies, research, and curricula devoted to many areas of sustainability, and we depend on those in our community to bring these efforts to fruition.
Office of Community Engagement
The Office of Community Engagement engages members of the campus and broader community in meaningful partnerships that meet identified community needs; advance the campus mission; and work toward more vibrant, just, and inclusive communities.
