Welcome to the 2020 Heritage Society celebration!

In lieu of our annual in-person event, we’ve reimagined our Heritage Society celebration as a unique, immersive, virtual experience—a digital journey that will take you to every corner of Minnesota and highlight the ingenuity and life-changing work happening throughout our five campuses.

Thank you for your commitment and vision

Thanks to your support, the University of Minnesota is ready for anything. Together, we are widening our circle, expanding horizons, and making a difference in Minnesota and across the world.

To find out how, watch video greetings from University leadership and a U of M student who excels both in the classroom and on a popular game show.
