SCU’s Strategic Plan for 2006 -2010 Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system, as a major partner in educating Minnesota’s workforce, will participate in identifying and meeting regional and statewide economic development priorities. “Leadership Reaches Out to Business” is one of four initiatives that comprise Workforce of the Future, an initiative of the system’s 2009 Action Plan.
Workforce of the Future - Purpose • To create regional prosperity and community success through outreach and enhanced educational services to Minnesota businesses. • Strategies will focus intensively on the workforce needs of industry (initially, the manufacturing sector).
