The Jackson Campus of Minnesota West has played an important role in preparing students for meaningful careers since 1964. Jackson is nestled in the beautiful Des Moines River Valley in Southwest Minnesota. The campus has long been known for preparing technicians in fields of electrician and power lineman. As a leader in the development of distance learning, the technical campus continues to expand its online course offerings. The campus offers students a variety of programs in areas such as automotive technology, business, computer, cosmetology, and power sports. Students may begin their four-year degree at the campus by attaining an Associate in Arts degree either through on-campus or online instruction.
The community of Jackson takes pride in its historic past. Early settlers took claim to the area and constructed the only upper-Midwest civilian fort named Fort Belmont. The Fort includes a sod house complete with period furnishings, the stockade where settlers survived the Indian uprisings, a 1800s farmhouse and 102-year-old country church. The site is also home to undisturbed prairie. For more community information visit http://www.jacksonmn.com.
