The 31 public colleges and universities in the system offer an array of services to help employers, businesses and organizations with their education and training needs.

With 53 campuses located in 46 Minnesota communities, the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system - which includes all public colleges and universities except the University of Minnesota - is the state's largest higher education provider.

Workforce assessment initiative

“By listening to Minnesota employers, we can obtain a greater, much more precise understanding of the state’s workforce needs. Armed with this data, we can ensure that higher education is delivering the right academic programs and preparing graduates with the skills necessary for the success of Minnesota’s businesses and communities.” - Chancellor Steven Rosenstone
