University of Minnesota Rochester says

Come to UMR and enter a collegiate environment like no other in the world. Faculty and students, research and education intertwine seamlessly with the strengths of biomedical and business enterprises of the Rochester area and the international reach of the University of Minnesota system. Rather than staying within traditional departmental structures, our programs span disciplines, institutions, even continents. Home to more than 30 technology-rich and learner-centered academic programs and hub of dozens of collaborative research initiatives, we proudly lead the way to a brighter future for our community, our state, and our world.

The Rochester Higher Education Development Committee (RHEDC) delivered a report to the Legislature and the Governor in January of 2006. The committee's recommendation was to establish "a world class higher education institution that leverages the University of Minnesota's research capability, in partnership with IBM, Mayo Clinic and other industry leaders to build signature academic and research programs that complement southeast Minnesota's existing leadership roles in health sciences, biosciences, engineering and technology." UMR has expanded its collaborations and partnerships beyond the academic programs to working hand-in-hand with local establishments to provide student housing, recreation, and entertainment as well.
