Grand Challenges Research Report, Campus Conversation Video

The report of the Provost's Grand Challenges Research Strategies Team was posted online in early 2016. The report, advancing the research goals outlined in the 2014 Strategic Plan, is the result of a multifaceted campuswide process to identify areas of exceptional crossdisciplinary strength where the Twin Cities campus might stake out special claims as a research university, as well as additional strategies to advance the University's strategic research goals. Extensive summary information is posted elsewhere on this site.

View GC Research Campus Conversation (video). The Feb. 16 event in Northrop's Best Buy Theatre featured brief presentations and Q&A with Provost Hanson and three faculty members from the GC : Marc Hillmyer, Sarah Hobbie, and Joe Soss.
