What an honor
to serve as president of the University of Minnesota System. Higher education has changed a lot during my career, and some of those changes are resulting in new pressures and challenges, yet never have I seen a university better positioned for what the future holds. I'm proud of how we serve our state while offering a world-class education, groundbreaking research, and community-engaged outreach.
Together we will build spaces of discovery, standing as a beacon of inclusion, preparing students for lives well lived, and driving Minnesota forward. And as we serve our state, we will help change the world.” Joan Gabel
