University of Minnesota, Rochester Master Plan


 

UMR campus expansion to accomodate about 1,500 students initially. In its foundational years, UMR forged partnerships with the Mayo Clinic and other institutions to offer distinctive health sciences and biosciences education that prepares students for a broad spectrum of current and emerging careers, ranging from patient care to pure and applied research. UMR matriculated its first class in 2009 and currently serves approximately eight hundred undergraduate and graduate students. In 2009, UMR prepared a master plan that envisioned an “Education District” in downtown Rochester that would foster collaborations in learning, research, and industry; and in the process contribute to the regeneration of downtown through the campus’ physical design and successful integration with the city.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
