University of Minnesota System

Building on our strength and momentum

As my tenure as interim president reaches its midpoint, I continue to be exceedingly proud to lead the University of Minnesota: the first-class education we provide students; the discoveries our researchers are making to change the world in ways both subtle and profound; and the vast footprint of our community-engaged outreach efforts across the state. We continue to make great progress on the bold goals outlined in MPact 2025, our systemwide strategic plan. But most importantly, we’re educating the students at all of our campuses—Crookston, Duluth, Morris, Rochester, and the Twin Cities—who will become our future workforce and our next-generation leaders. The University of Minnesota is fundamental to the prosperity of the State of Minnesota, and I’m incredibly proud to be a part of it. 

It’s a great honor to be able to lead this amazing research university during a critical time in our history. I will contribute everything I can over the coming months to advance the University of Minnesota as it serves our students and the state.
