The following letter and corresponding information were recently sent to the state university presidents and provosts requesting expressions of interest in expanding metro baccalaureate offerings. Although the request was directed to the state universities, this request has implications for all institutions in the Twin Cities metropolitan area and has been copied to all presidents, CAOs, and CSAOs.
The request for expressions of interest follows significant consultation and discussion around metro baccalaureate planning over the past few years. The state universities’ responses to the expressions of interest will inform the metro baccalaureate strategic plan that will be presented to the Board of Trustees early in 2016. The tentative timeline of activities can be found on page 4 of the planning context document.
Questions or comments can be directed to Todd Harmening, System Director for Planning, 651-201-1856.
