UThink, IThink, What Does Dr. Warren Warwick Think?

Of Driven to Discover

Professor Warwick thanked Vice President O'Brien for mentioning teaching.

He said he was offended by "Driven to Discover" — who is driving the University?

It should have teaching and discovery. The major point of the University is to teach students, the state, and the nation.

Who's behind "Driven to Discover"? It could apply to 3M as well as the University.

Who is Dr. Warren Warrick?

He is one of the truly great faculty members at the University of Minnesota. He is responsible for our position as one of the premiere medical institutions in the world for the treatment of cystic fibrosis. And no, this is the real deal, and not just another Driven to Discover marketing claim.
