Research and Creative Activity at UMD

At UMD, our shared passion for discovery fuels innovation and creativity across the five colleges. Faculty and students work together to produce high-quality research that benefits people in Minnesota and beyond. Whether they’re discovering new galaxies or composing original music for a theatre production, Bulldogs are changing the world.

Each year, UMD’s colleges and research institutions receive $20 million in external research funding. This support ensures UMD can continue to preserve Minnesota’s natural resources, build a strong regional economy, and foster global engagement among students.

  • UMD’s Sustainable Agriculture Project produced 30 tons of organically-grown food in 2016/17

  • In 2015, the Natural Resources Research Institute delivered $7.7 million of research on the Great Lakes coastal zones.
