Experiential Learning

Businesses in Minnesota and around the world are demanding a diverse pool of talented graduates who are fully prepared to step into a growing number of workforce opportunities. With 97-98 percent of all UMD graduates placed in jobs and higher education, we are committed to strengthening our role as a primary source of high-achieving talent. Employers find UMD graduates to be competitive job candidates whose education includes academic excellence, experiential learning, and service to the community. Campaign gifts for experiential learning create new opportunities for UMD students to enrich their education through immersion in the workplace, community, and other cultures. 

Your gift to experiential learning:

  • Offers students more internships, mentorships, research and service learning opportunities

  • Helps students gain greater cultural understanding through study abroad
