  • Be the partner of choice to meet Minnesota's workforce and community needs
  • Deliver to students, employers, communities and taxpayers the highest value/most affordable higher education option.

Saint Paul College and other Minnesota State Colleges and Universities are undergoing a collaborative strategic planning process called Charting the Future, designed to provide us the opportunity to imagine a better world for our students, our colleges and universities, and our communities throughout the state.
