University of Minnesota scholars Arthur Harkins and John Moravec continue development of their open source memorandum, Building a “Leapfrog” University. The document provides recommendations gathered from the University of Minnesota community on steps the University may take to transform into one of the top universities in the world. The recommendations generated by this activity run parallel to and complement the University’s own strategic repositioning process.To date, the authors have received over fifty responses to the previous release versions of document – all positive. Respondents include University leadership, a department chair, senior faculty, students, a state leader, and the vice president of a major Minnesota company.
These updated versions incorporate their comments and insights toward supporting the University’s strategic vision.
