In response to a growing need for public school teachers, the school was chartered by the Minnesota State Legislature, and teacher training was its primary curriculum. Bemidji Normal became Bemidji State Teachers College and began offering a four-year degree in 1921.


Bemidji State University serves over 5,300 students in undergraduate, graduate and online degree programs. Our core philosophy is built upon a commitment to environmental stewardship, community service and global understanding. You’ll see that commitment in what we teach and in what we do.
