Vision unrealized? University of Minnesota faces new reality

Dr. Frank Cerra has hitched his wagon to outgoing University of Minnesota president Robert Bruininks. Cerra, medical school dean and head of the school's Academic Health Center, is retiring at the end of the year partly because Bruininks is doing the same. It's just as well. Together, the two men had sought to remake the school into a top research university and an economic engine for Minnesota. But as they prepare to exit, their vision is in doubt.
