When new University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler came to UMM on Tuesday, he repeatedly emphasized the campus' unique combination of a strong liberal arts core and emphasis on renewable energy and sustainability, calling UMM an "intellectual magnet" in the state.


"This is a special place," Kaler told a gathering of about 50 community members. "This is a community that clearly values its students. It's a community that's devoted to excellence in undergraduate education."
