M State's FlexPace

Minnesota State Community and Technical College 


Minnesota State Community and Technical College (M State) is a distant admirer of Riverland’s FlexPace program. Using innovation funding, M State launched their own FlexPace pilot with the helpful guidance of experts from Riverland. Through this collaborative effort, M State will build a vibrant mastery-based learning program in the northern part of the state to match Riverland’s in the south. Once complete, working adults in northwest Minnesota will have a new flexible path to achieving a technical degree or certificate.
