Posted: Fri, 03/07/2014 - 4:09pm in News

Yesterday Governor Dayton released his supplemental budget proposal which includes additional funding for Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU). The $17 million in additional base funding will help support SCTCC's goal of providing excellent education that works. The Governor also supports increased flexibility in how the funds are spent.

In response to Governor Dayton’s supplemental budget recommendation release on Thursday, March 6, MnSCU Chancellor Steven Rosenstone issued the following statement:

"We greatly appreciate Governor Dayton’s unwavering support for Minnesota State Colleges and Universities and the critical role we play in ensuring access to an extraordinary education for all Minnesotans.  His supplemental budget proposal will advance the outstanding work of our faculty and staff.  We look forward to collaborating with House and Senate leaders to advance this investment in the success of our students and the communities we serve.”
