Together we’re solving the world's biggest challenges.

We’re tackling the opportunity gap from every angle

Hear from our researchers

The achievement gap among children in our society is growing, and the educational approach so far isn’t the solution—it’s part of the problem. So University of Minnesota researchers are changing the conversation from one of achievement to one of opportunity.

More than 140 researchers at the U of M are engaging with business, community, and education leaders in order to close the opportunity gap for healthy child development in Minnesota and across the nation.

Because who we become as a society depends greatly upon how we treat our children. And we believe nothing should ever limit a child’s opportunity to succeed.
