UMore Park: University of Minnesota Outreach, Research and Education Park

Publicly Engaged Research, Education and Outreach at UMore Park


Progress Report
June 2012

The 2012 Progress Report chronicles the academic foundations of UMore Park and the partnerships, events and reports that have enhanced our work. The vision for UMore Park, affirmed by the Board of Regents in 2006, is founded on the University’s academic mission – research, education and outreach. In 2007, work from six task forces comprised of more than 100 faculty, students, staff and external contributors addressed initial academic opportunities for UMore Park. Following the creation of the Academic Mission Advisory Board in 2008, which seeks to further integrate the academic mission into planning and development, students and faculty have contributed new knowledge that is relevant to the goals for UMore Park. To date, over 180 students have made contributions through capstone courses, internships, public education, class projects and special research studies.
