Serving the Campus and Region

Outreach and Engagement creates innovative pathways to strengthen the vitality of the campus and region. Through engagement of corporate organizations for sponsorships, planning operational activities, camps and increasing the visibility of the campus through grant writing. Working closely with faculty, staff, administrative colleagues, external collaborators and constituency groups the office is responsible for campus leadership, vision, and regional visibility for UMN Crookston's strategic outreach and engagement initiatives. Collaboration includes working with academic departments and campus units, regional economic development Centers, the communities in northwest Minnesota, regional organizations and throughout the State of Minnesota.
