What are U officials considering this legislative session?


Just got the American Association of State Colleges and Universities report above from University of Minnesota spokesman Jeff Falk in advance of President Eric Kaler’s 2012 University of Minnesota Legislative Briefing on Feb. 1, which is open to the public.

That speech will go into the U’s legislative priorities (access, academic excellence and so forth), especially the capital requests, Falk said.

The issues it lists sound really familiar, and some student leaders say they might be pushing for changes in area #9. (More on that later.)

University officials should be reading the report, Falk said, and “it will likely influence their approach.”
