World-Class ResearchWe encourage bold innovation by drawing from the diverse inspirations, talents and capacities of the entire University of Minnesota system. We work across departments, campuses, field stations and research and outreach centers.
Community PartnershipWe engage stakeholders, from individuals to industries, to identify which plants, pathogens and other pests are most threatening to Minnesota. We foster stakeholder engagement from project inception to implementation.
Responsible StewardshipWe are accountable stewards of the physical and financial resources shared with us. Our success is measured by the improvements we make to invasive species management.
Educational DevelopmentWe support the intellectual and professional development of the next generation of scientists to address the challenges posed by terrestrial invasive species.
