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, strong undergraduate programs, a growing research portfolio, and emerging strengths in its graduate, professional, and pre-professional programs. 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. In its goal to be recognized as one of the nation’s top-20 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-20 public research universities.
