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.
