University of Minnesota Rochester Civic Action Plan

October 19, 2017

The University of Minnesota Rochester is the newest campus in the Minnesota system, with an emphasis on innovative education in the health sciences. Given the constraints of UMR’s youth and small size, this Civic Action Plan emphasizes improving existing efforts through incremental and sustainable growth. Currently, a campus strategic planning process is in progress, with anticipated additions to this plan expected to emanate from that endeavor by July 2018.

The strategic approach of this action plan focuses on three goals:

  • Deepening and expanding our platform partnership with the Mayo Clinic.
  • Leveraging the expertise of faculty in the scholarship of teaching and learning to deepen and expand service-learning and community-based research opportunities for students.
  • Developing systems and processes to increase awareness of how our campus is engaged in the community, and assess the impact of that engagement.
