If you could start a college from scratch, how would yours break with tradition? The University of Minnesota Rochester (UMR) is a living experiment in college teaching and learning. The already robust university system added the Rochester campus in 2009 to collaborate with the nearby Mayo Clinic in preparing undergraduates for careers in health sciences. UMR administrators and faculty are taking advantage of the newness of their program to figure out how college students learn best on their unconventional campus.
