UMM in Motion


An Engaged Campus

Community engagement means developing lasting relationships and creating lasting change.  In a university environment, community engaged learning looks like what UMM students do every day: they pull on rubber boots to study marine biology, grow organic produce for a food pantry to learn sustainable agriculture, or provide tax preparation help to low-income families to learn about accounting and advocacy. The community is the classroom, and everyone benefits.

Of the 5,300 colleges and universities in the United States, only 311 of them are designated as Engaged Campuses by the Carnegie Foundation. UMM is one of them. Click Here to Read More.
