Simply put, the Academic Health Center has 3 goals:
1 - Educate the next generation of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, public health professionals, and veterinarians.
2 - Discover and deliver new preventions, treatments, and cures that improve the health of families and communities.
3 - Enhance Minnesota’s bioscience industries and grow the state’s economy.
Because we take our status as a public research institution seriously.
And we will continue to deliver on the promise we make to the state of Minnesota and its people.
Where is the AHC headed?
These are challenging times for our country and our University. Our budgets are tight and our resources stretched.
But we are confident in our ability to move forward, with the support of:
- Our people—students, faculty, staff, who are learning and discovering every day
- Our state—which has invested in the Biomedical Discovery District and the Minnesota Partnership, a collaboration between the University and Mayo Clinic
- Our donors—who have given generously in the last few years—3 of the largest gifts ever given to the Minnesota Medical Foundation
- Our business partners—who help bring discoveries made by our faculty to market, and thus to the people of our state
