Minnesota state


Minnesota State, formerly known as Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) system, comprises 31 colleges and universities, including 24 two-year colleges and seven state universities. Minnesota State is funded by appropriations granted by the Minnesota Legislature.

The combined system is governed by the Board of Trustees, a 15-member body that includes one state university student, one community college student and one technical college student.  These three voting positions were permanently established by the 1994 Legislature as a result of cooperative efforts between Students United and the Minnesota State College Student Association (MSCSA). 

Students United needs student representation at Minnesota State committee meetings. Students are the voice for Students United on important issues. Also, Students United will provide background information and staff support for the meetings so students have the tools they need to be a strong voice. Come back soon for an updated list of committees that you will have an opportunity to apply for.
