Welcome to the 2005-2006 Self-Study Report

This web-enabled version of Transforming the University Through Strategic Planning and Action is an online reference tool for the self-study report of the University of Minnesota’s Twin Cities campus.  This report has been prepared for the 2005-06 comprehensive evaluation of the campus by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

This online tool features not only the content of the printed version of the self-study report but also interactive links to additional narrative, reference documents, and graphical data. In addition, the tool serves as a comprehensive online reference to numerous University of Minnesota websites.
