Higher education in Minnesota is at a breakpoint: how will it support radical changes in workforce needs? Now is the time to break with old solutions and embrace new ideas.

As a forum participant, your expertise and insights will inform concrete action steps to set the future course of higher education and maintain Minnesota’s legacy of educational excellence.

Speakers, including former U.S. Secretary of Education, Margaret Spellings, will provide perspectives for discussions and your informed responses will lead to meaningful recommendations. For a complete list of speakers and forum agenda visit
