Join the fun!

On March 17th we're hosting Science & Engineering Day on the UMD campus for middle and high school students

We are committed to inspiring a love for STEM and connecting with our community in meaningful ways.

Connecting with Our Community

We do outreach at Swenson College in a big way. Our students, faculty and staff engage with local students in the surrounding Minnesota and Wisconsin communities to encourage interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
