Where Do We Stand At the U of M Relative to Our Competition?

Yesterday, the Board of Regents met at Morris to discuss, among other things, a report from the Measurement and Metrics (M&M) team. The full report is contained in a rather large pdf file that you may wish to download.

I have posted selections from this document for discussion on the Periodic Table.

I think that the data presented in this report calls strongly into question the "ambitious aspirations" of our administration to "become one of the top three public research universities [sic] in the world."

A community discussion of reasonable goals for the University that are within our financial capability and land grant mission is in order.

Ciao, Bonzo
