Driven to Create a Better World. Together.

Far into the future, the Humphrey School of Public Affairs will affect the state of our world—influencing who has opportunities to lead, how leaders are prepared, what new policy knowledge is created, and which evidence-based innovations are brought to bear on contentious, consequential issues.

Like its namesake, Hubert H. Humphrey, the School is driven by a passion for human welfare, abiding and boundless optimism, and a rare talent for inspiring people to work in concert toward common goals.

Through the Campaign for the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, donors and friends will invest in leaders who skillfully align community needs and big ideas. Together, we will discover and apply solutions to pressing challenges of our state, nation, and world.

Your support of the Humphrey School advances our vision to:

  • Broaden access for a wider array of future public affairs leaders
  • Promote hope, opportunity, democracy, and civic life through extraordinary research and teaching
  • Expand our global reach and impact through programs that bring the world to Minnesota and Minnesota to the world
