Transforming Minnesota and the world

The University of Minnesota is boldly moving forward with its goal to become one of the world's top three public research universities within the next decade--an institution with "a deep and abiding cultural commitment to excellence" in education and in the advancement of knowledge for the public good, as University president Robert Bruininks said in his 2007 State of the University address. Through its pioneering communications research, the SJMC is right in step with these strategic aspirations.
