To aid further in defining the culture, the task force, with the help of its President’s
Emerging Leaders team, conducted eleven focus groups from January through March
2006, with a total of 82 participants. Focus groups included undergraduate, graduate, and
professional school students; faculty; and P&A, Civil Service, and Bargaining Unit staff.
The sessions were held on the Twin Cities, Crookston, Duluth, and Morris campuses.
Concurrently, twenty-three senior university administrators were interviewed from
February through April 2006. This work captures a snapshot in time of University culture from key campus audiences while those groups and the University are in the midst of the Strategic Positioning
Document providing recommendations on improving the culture of the University by creating more unified departments and units and clarifying the goal of becoming a top three public research institution.
