About Us

The Minnesota Independent Scholars Forum is a group of individuals who support research and scholarship both outside and inside institutions of higher education. Membership is open to anyone who shares this goal.


The Minnesota Independent Scholars Forum (MISF) exists to foster scholars, whatever their formal credentials or academic involvement. MISF strives to be encouraging and critical, always aware of what distinguishes good scholarship. We encourage all projects of disciplined intellectual inquiry.

Our membership is open to anyone who supports these goals.
