Everyone in the Minneapolis College campus community is encouraged to help advocate for legislative support by sharing information about how lives are transformed when students experience the institution’s high-quality academic programs and exceptional levels of support that help overcome barriers.
As part of the Minnesota State Colleges & Universities System, Minneapolis College’s budget is considered by the State Legislature through a systemwide request. If approved, Minneapolis College’s portion of the Minnesota State allocation will provide funding to maintain existing levels of staffing and student services as well as maintain and continually improve its infrastructure and technology investments to accommodate students and employees.
Supporting Minneapolis College and other Minnesota State colleges and universities helps students achieve their higher education goals affordably and helps the community by providing the talent employers need. Minneapolis College provides an affordable path for community members to elevate their socio-economic status and break the cycle of poverty through higher education. It serves as an anchor in the community at a time when extensive rebuilding of socio-economic systems is desperately needed. By serving under-represented students, Minneapolis College helps advance Minnesota’s economy and workforce.
