Academic Programs

The Academic Programs and Quality Assurance unit works with Minnesota State campuses to:

  • Ensure program quality and excellence that is competitive on a national and international level in meeting the needs of students for occupational, general, undergraduate, and graduate education;
  • Facilitate ease of transfer among schools and programs, integrate course credit, and coordinate degree programs;
  • Give the highest priority to meeting the needs of Minnesota employers for a highly skilled and adaptable workforce;
  • Enhance Minnesota's quality of life by developing an understanding and appreciation of a free and diverse society; and
  • Eliminate unnecessary duplication of programs and achieve high quality programs to meet the diverse needs of the Minnesota workforce.
