Minnesota state Committees

A way to have students' voices heard, is through having students serving on Minnesota State councils and committees. Minnesota State has four councils under Student and Academic Affairs: Technology, Student Affairs, Policy, and Academic Affairs Counsel. There are various workgroups and/or committees under each of these councils. Also, there are various committees that serve for other departments or areas within Minnesota State. To ensure students are heard by the system, we must ensure students are sitting at the table when issues and decisions are being discussed. We are searching for students who have a passion for representing their fellow students and improving higher education for all of Minnesota State students.
