LeadMN sent this letter raising concerns about tuition differential after a recent article in the Pioneer Press reported that students were paying increased fees on classes that moved online because of the pandemic.

As we look towards the fall, FAFSA completions and fall enrollments continue to lag severely behind.

"George Floyd, Jamar Clarke, Philando Castile. The last two weeks have been characterized by righteous unrest. Racism continues to plague our state and our country, impacting our already vulnerable communities."
The LeadMN Governing Council is calling on the Minnesota State Chancellor to review the law enforcement training programs throughout Minnesota State. Three of the four of the officers involved in the unjust killing of George Floyd attended a law enforcement program at a Minnesota State college. And all four attended a community college in Minnesota.
