Minnesota Office of Higher Education

Public Engagement Calls


We invite you to join us for a series of public engagement calls focusing on postsecondary education related issues. These calls were born out of a response to COVID-19 and we will continue these calls as a way to engage communities moving forward. These calls have a listening session style format, meaning that attendees will enter with their microphones muted for the entire call. If you have a question during the panel, please use the chat function and the host will address it. All Minnesotans are welcome.
