M State Featured as CAE Spotlight Institution for Up2U Partnership

Minnesota State Community and Technical College (M State) has partnered with Minnesota State University Moorhead (MSUM) and St. Cloud State University (SCSU) to offer university-bound community college students an exciting opportunity to make the most of their education while reducing their student debt. The Council for Aid to Education (CAE) has recently recognized M State as a Spotlight Institution for its Up2U program. The Up2U program is designed to encourage and train M State faculty to create discipline-specific tasks within their courses to diagnose Up2U program students’ critical-thinking and written-communications skills. Student mastery of performance tasks are assessed upon completion at M State using the CLA+. Students meeting established requirements are then granted financial assistance of $500 – $5000 a year in their transfer to either MSUM or SCSU.
