A distinctive undergraduate campus within the University of Minnesota system, Morris combines a rigorous, student-centered residential liberal arts education with access to the resources and opportunities of one of the nation's largest universities. A founding member of the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges (COPLAC), Morris provides students with a rigorous academic experience, preparing them to be global citizens who value and pursue intellectual growth, civic engagement, intercultural competence, and environmental stewardship. The student body of nearly 1700 is supported by 130 faculty members, a student/faculty ratio of 13:1. The Morris campus is the most ethnically diverse in the University of Minnesota system, with 20 percent American Indian students, 10 percent U.S. students of color, and 12 percent international students.

Morris is highly ranked by national publications -- U.S. News & World Report as a top-ten public liberal arts college; Forbes as one of the best colleges and universities in the nation; and Fiske Guide to Colleges includes Morris in its list of “the bestand most interesting” schools in the U.S., Canada, and the United Kingdom.
