MnSCU Fiscal Year 2014-2015 Biennial Budget Request
The fiscal year 2014-2015 budget request, Working Together for Minnesota’s Prosperity, asks for additional state support of $97 million over the biennium ($40 million in the first year and $57 million in the second). The state’s support represents 35% of a three-way partnership that comprises the total support for the system. An additional 35% of the proposal is supported by campus efficiencies and external funding. The remaining 29% is contributed by students through a modest tuition increase. The additional state support contained in the proposal would be directed to three specific areas all of which are tied to advancing the Strategic Framework: 1. Advance competitiveness of Minnesota’s workforce; 2. Increase access and affordability; and 3. Accelerate completion.
