Dr. Craig Johnson: Minnesota colleges need more funding support - West Central Tribune

While we are increasing support services and resources to help students manage challenges in their personal life as well as in the classroom, we simply do not have adequate funding to ensure provision of the services and resources necessary to meet students’ needs. Our financial challenges are not a new development. Since 1995, state funding for public higher education in Minnesota has decreased by 47%, while our operating and personnel costs have increased every year.
