Spring Visit Day 2023

students gathering in the Humphrey School

Our Spring Visit Day provides an excellent chance for admitted students to learn about the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, meet our distinguished faculty, and network with current students as well as alumni. 

We hope you can join us Monday, April 3, 2023, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Take a look at what's in store. 

A light breakfast will be offered to accompany a welcome from our admissions and dean's offices before we jump into presentations from current students, the Office of Career and Student Success, and a conversation about funding presented by the Admissions Office. We will break to enjoy lunch and hear from a panel of alumni from across our master's degree programs.

The afternoon will focus on your specific program, allowing you to engage with professors and current students who will give you an in-depth perspective on what your time at the Humphrey School could look like.

NOTE: While this is subject to change, we are planning for this event to be in person. As such, all attendees will need to abide by University of Minnesota masking and campus visit policies. Grants are available to help subsidize the cost of travel.
