Following the release of the Future Financial Resources Task Force report in fall of 2009 and its presentation to the University of Minnesota’s Board of Regents, President Robert Bruininks adopted all five task force recommendations and appointed a cross-functional, University-wide team to begin implementing them.
This report summarizes the work of the Advancing Excellence Work Group, which flowed out of these earlier strategic planning efforts, with a similar focus on cost reduction and productivity enhancement strategies. Specifically, it examines the University’s integrated approach to managing its major cost drivers, additional strategies to address other costs centers, and ongoing efforts to improve academic quality, productivity, and revenue generation systemwide.
