We have established ourselves as a leader and a model sustainable community in the University of Minnesota system, in the state of Minnesota, and in the country. We are a nationally ranked, award-winning public liberal arts college, and we are shameless in our promotion of this success. I am so proud of the work we have accomplished together and so honored to have had the opportunity to serve as chancellor at this school the Regents of the University of Minnesota call the “jewel in the crown” of the university system. It truly has been a joy and a privilege to build on the strong foundation established by those who have come before.

I will miss this place, and most of all I will miss each of you— your candor, your outspokenness, your insistence on consultation and collaboration, your profound desire to shape the communities in which you live, and your belief in this campus’s mission.

--From Chancellor Johnson's message
