Global Focus

Expand our global reach and impact

Boundaries are dissolving between domestic and global affairs. This is particularly true in Minneapolis–St. Paul, a community with 17 globally focused Fortune 500 companies, Federal Reserve Bank, one of the world’s major waterways, and dozens of thriving nonprofit organizations involved in global affairs. Our Minnesota communities are deeply connected to the world beyond our state.

The Humphrey School must be internationally focused to influence and inform action on issues around the globe and to prepare students for challenging careers worldwide.

New funding will make it possible for us to host game-changing international exchange programs, to send more of our graduate students around the world, and to be an international leader in sharing knowledge.

with Your gift we will:  

  • Increase career-enhancing global field experiences for our students
  • Bring world leaders and visiting scholars to the Humphrey School to work with faculty, students, and the broader community
  • Develop sustained research and teaching partnerships with innovative governments and institutions around the world
  • Employ state-of-the-art knowledge-sharing technology
