Chancellor’s Circle

The University of Minnesota Duluth recognizes and thanks donors whose lifetime giving to UMD is at $25,000 or greater as members of the Chancellor’s Circle.  Gifts to any area at UMD are included in the recognition.

On even years, UMD hosts a summer dinner to celebrate individual members of the Chancellor’s Circle.  The following winter, business and organizational members are honored at a luncheon.  

We encourage you to visit the UMD campus and our donor recognition area located near the Tweed Museum of Art.  We are honored to publically recognize and thank all Chancellor’s Circle members.
