Minnesota State is the most powerful and effective resource that the state has to ensure opportunity and prosperity for its citizens and communities. Our 30 colleges and 7 universities contribute to an engaged, equitable, and productive society and serve as catalysts for social and economic vibrancy. They are places of hope and opportunity for Minnesotans who strive to create a better future for themselves, their families, and their communities.

In FY2017, the colleges and universities of Minnesota State generated an economic impact of $8 billion in the state: $4.1 billion direct and $3.9 billion indirect and induced. This impact is the result of operational spending, capital spending (10-year average), payroll and benefits paid to employees, student spending, and visitor spending. Based upon this impact, $1 out of every $42 in the Minnesota economy is supported by Minnesota State.

Most of all, Minnesota State is proud of its students and their success stories.

Our collective FY2020-FY2021 Legislative Request includes:

Minnesota State is requesting $150 million for asset preservation, which funds the repair and replacement of building systems at our 54 campus locations. Higher Education Asset Preservation and Replacement keeps campuses warm, safe, and dry and operating efficiently and effectively.

Note: Specific projects and costs will depend on actual funding level and college and university conditions at the time of appropriation.
