H20.2010 - Home

Page address:

These are challenging days and times for our campus community as we are experiencing change on many levels. Some of us are re-vamping operations, trying to re-imagine programs and curricula, while some may be looking into possibilities for employment outside of our University. All of us are doing our best - individually and collectively - to keep moving forward. As part of our response to current budget reductions, the campus leaders have initiated efforts, including this web site, to assist and support the campus community in moving through these stressful times.

H2O.2010, stands for Healing, Hope, and Opportunity.

Water (H2O) is comprised of hydrogen (a clean source of fuel) and oxygen (which we breathe!); water is central to all life and is very much a part of our lives in Minnesota.

  • Healing has the effect of improving something and refers to becoming well
  • Hope is when you maintain and grow, have ambition and goals, are not holding on for dear life, and are ready to move forward
  • Opportunity presents a possibility or option, especially one that offers favorable circumstances, situations, or some kind of advantage

Questions relating to the H2O.2010 Healing, Hope and Opportunity initiatives may be directed to Dr. Duckett via e-mail at or telephone 389-1684.
