USNews Rankings of Public Schools of the BigTen

yellow - same as previous year
green - improved
red - declined

If we haven't cracked the top half of the BigTen by now, how are we ever going to attain the goal stated by the current University of Minnesota administration?

"Starting in 2004, the University began the first comprehensive strategic planning process it had undergone in almost 15 years. Under the leadership of Provost Sullivan, the University community articulated an ambitious aspiration for the University--to be one of the top three public research universities in the world [sic] within a decade."
Time to set some realistic priorities - given our land grant mission and duty to the citizens of the state?

Time to pursue these realistic priorities within our available resources?

President Bruininks?

Provost Sullivan?
