Learn & Engage

U of M Faculty & Staff

We seek to enrich the campus experience, promote engagement beyond the classroom, develop and foster vitality in arts and culture, and create opportunities for cross-disciplinary dialogue. We invite U of M faculty and staff to engage with Northrop through various programs, opportunities, and discounts.

Northrop Across Campus

Northrop Across Campus is a program that encourages University of Minnesota faculty and staff to incorporate Northrop Season events into classroom discussion and exploration by providing complimentary tickets for entire U of M classes. 

We believe that engaging with performances and cultural events can deepen curriculum in unique and exciting ways and can offer an experience unlike any other on campus. At a University that celebrates discovery, take time to discover dance, music, and performing arts. 

If you would like your class to receive access to an in-person, livestream, or on-demand performance/film as part of Northrop Across Campus, please contact our Campus Engagement Team at nacampus@umn.edu. We are happy to walk you through the process, discuss the academic connections, and help craft meaningful experiences for your students.
