With Dr. Faith Hensrud, BSU’s 11th president, at the helm, our top administrators, deans and student leaders work together to ensure that Bemidji State remains the region’s university of note.

Bemidji State University, a member of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system, is committed to preparing the students of northern Minnesota and beyond to succeed and serve in today’s world. As the landscape of American higher education continues to change, we evolve along with it, making sure that we are, first and foremost, a school where students come first.

In addition to the Office of the President, BSU has four administrative units overseeing the academic, student service and operational aspects of the university:

We are also powered by the activities of the BSU Alumni & Foundation, which sustains our efforts through friend-raising and fundraising functions. The offices of the president and all cabinet members are always open to our students. Drop by or contact us with your questions, concerns and words of support for Bemidji State.
