The Case for Investing in the University of Minnesota

The legislative session is well underway, and the University of Minnesota faces the possibility of additional deep reductions to state funding for 2011-12 and 2012-13. During the last month, we have worked hard to make the case for investing in the University in order to promote economic growth and global competitiveness for the state of Minnesota and its citizens. 
It is important for the entire University community, as well as our alumni, friends, and supporters across the state and around the world, to stay informed and engaged at this crucial time. Please take a moment to review the links below, and don't hesitate to share with others the reasons why this great University matters to Minnesota.
