Historical note: In September 2004, President Robert Bruininks announced the launch of a systemwide self-assessment and planning process known initially as "strategic positioning." The goal was to make the University of Minnesota "one of the top three public research universities in the world within a decade."

Collection description: Documentation of the Strategic Positioning effort was shared broadly with the University community and the public via the University's website. This documentation includes reports, charge letters, presentations, publicity materials, and the project websites themselves. Of particular value are the drafts and final versions of the reports of the task forces, whose recommendations became the basis for decisions about the future of the University.
