UMD's Mission Statement

The University of Minnesota Duluth integrates liberal education, research, creative activity, and public engagement and prepares students to thrive as lifelong learners and globally engaged citizens.


Strategic Planning at UMD

In 2011, UMD created a Strategic Plan with a refined mission, vision, statement of core values, and goals for the university. The new vision, used to define a set of action steps aligned with the goals, focused on students learning and growing through experience, critical inquiry, and interaction with other learners. 

A process to review and update the Strategic Plan began in January 2017 and will be completed once the UMN System's Strategic Plan called MPACT is approved during 2020-21.
