PREAMBLE

The University of Connecticut is the state’s premier public university with a reputation for excellence in all of its missions:  teaching, research, and service, including clinical care and outreach.  It has highly-qualified and successful students, excellent undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs, and a strong research portfolio.  As a research-intensive university, it prizes excellence not only in teaching and learning, but also in scholarly endeavor, scientific research, and artistic production.  As a land and sea grant institution, it is committed to active engagement with the larger community.  The University continuously aims to become a more inclusive institution that explicitly promotes respect and understanding, broadens participation among under-represented groups, advances cultural competence, celebrates intellectual openness and multiculturalism, and welcomes varied perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds.  In its goal to be recognized as one of the nation’s top public research universities, the University of Connecticut’s policies, processes, and standards of performance in all of its missions should be comparable to those among which it aspires to be ranked.  The University of Connecticut By-Laws and those of its constituent units should be interpreted and applied in this light and should also be regularly assessed to ensure that they are commensurate with those of the nation’s top public research universities.
