WELCOME to digital archives for the University of Minnesota Outreach, Research and Education (UMore) Park.
The official UMore Park website includes current information and project contacts.
UMore Park is the University's 5,000-acre property located 25 miles southeast of the Twin Cities in Dakota County. The vision to build a unique, sustainable, University-founded community of 20,000 to 30,000 people, a 25- to 30-year endeavor, was affirmed by the University's Board of Regents in December 2006.
The plan for this new, sustainable community integrates environmental, socio-cultural and economic opportunities with a specific focus on innovations in renewable energy, education and lifelong learning, health and wellness, the natural environment and regional economic development.
Planning and development for UMore Park is founded upon the University's academic mission—research, education and public engagement.
