President Frenk: A New Vision for a New Century and Beyond

President Frenk shared perspectives on the future of higher education and called on the University of Miami community to pursue a bold collective vision. "The University of Miami can increase its role as a magnet for talent," he said. "We must attract and retain people who stand out in the classroom, in the research lab, at the hospital bedside, and on the playing field." He outlined the groundbreaking ideas that have emerged from University stakeholders during his first year to guide UM's growth. Read more about the Roadmap for Our New Century.
