Public Higher Education in Minnesota

During the 2009 session, the Minnesota Legislature mandated that the Board of Trustees of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) submit an expenditure reduction plan. The goal was to achieve lower base allocations at their institutions while protecting direct instruction [2009 Minnesota Laws Chapter 95, Article 1, Section 4, Subdivision 4 (b)]. Their publication, Legislative Report: Summary of 2012-2013 Budget Planning, was released in March 2010 and provides an overview of efforts at each of their campuses.

Around the same time, the American Council of Trustees and Alumni with the Freedom Foundation of Minnesota released At a Crossroads: a Report Card on Public Higher Education in Minnesota. The report states “The MnSCU board deserves particular note for its active engagement in setting institutional priorities and for putting a premium on greater system-wide transparency and accountability. But as this report outlines, Minnesota schools are faced with rising costs, low graduation rates, and curricular gaps that make real and proactive engagement imperative.”
