We boast a thriving intellectual community that attracts curious and committed colleagues at the heart of a statewide system improving life for millions every day.

Impactful work

Employees at UMF can see how their work impacts the lives of students, patients, and others in the state and beyond. In 2022, we celebrated over 90,000 supporters who collectively gave $453 million to support the university's work — another in a string of record-giving years and the highest total in university history. Whether employees work in face-to-face fundraising, mass marketing, or operations, connection to the organization’s mission consistently ranks high for why employees join and stay at UMF.

Cool factor

UMF is a unique organization based in the Twin Cities–a non-profit, but still part of a state-wide University system with five distinct campuses, providing employees unique opportunities to do fun, creative, and meaningful work.
