Dayton to discuss higher education cuts

Gov. Mark Dayton is scheduled to participate Wednesday in a roundtable discussion on higher education funding.

The event will be held at Metropolitan State University, beginning at 10:00 a.m. Representatives of the Minnesota Office of Higher Education, Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, University of Minnesota, Private College Council and Minnesota Career Colleges will also participate.

An advisory for the roundtable lists several topics for discussion, including the impact of proposed spending cuts on people, jobs and tuition.

This will be Dayton’s third roundtable on budget issues in recent weeks. He previously met with a group of mayors to discuss Local Government Aid and with representatives of the building trades to discuss economic development and a bonding bill.
