Recruitment Events

The Humphrey School is comprised of students from around the country and across the globe. We are pleased to attend off-campus events every year that offer us the opportunity to meet prospective students and share the Humphrey School with them. Please visit our Recruitment Event calendar to see if we will be in your area soon!

Preview Days

Each year we offer prospective students the opportunity to attend one of our fall Humphrey Preview Days to learn more about the University of Minnesota Humphrey School of Public Affairs. Join us and discover more about programs and courses from the faculty themselves, hear personal anecdotes from current students, and learn from our alumni about the exciting work they have done with their Humphrey School degrees. Any prospective student is welcome at any Information Session or Preview Day event. Information about the 2015 Humphrey Preview Days will be available in summer 2015.

Note: Any prospective student is welcome at any Information Session or Preview Day event. Please contact our office with any questions at or (612) 624-3800.

Information Sessions

We are pleased to offer a series of targeted Information Sessions on campus, which introduce prospective students to our faculty, students, and admissions staff. The sessions offer an opportunity to hear about program highlights, the admissions process, and engage with members of our community. Event dates are listed here; please RSVP so that we know we will be meeting you soon!

Online Chats

We understand that some prospective students may not be able to physically visit the Humphrey School. To assist those students, we host online chats in which faculty, students, and admissions staff can answer specific questions. Please check back for our next scheduled chat session.
