Elevating the Impact
Measuring and broadening impact is a critical goal of any institution. The University of Minnesota System is committed to this goal and is working to ensure that all research, outreach, and service work undertaken improves the quality of life for Minnesotans—and that we share insights created at the U with the world.
At CTS, we wholly embrace this commitment and work every day with our partners to ensure that each project addresses critical transportation issues. Our impacts take multiple forms, and these are visible in the projects highlighted in our annual impacts report. We are pleased to share this brief view of our work with you.
