MnSCU has $30 in reserves and 4 at least 4 campuses (Moorhead, Bemidji, Southwest and Winona) are in severe deficit situations. I hope a legislator will do something about this. MnSCU is hoarding taxpayer monies that need to go to the campuses.

MnSCU is sitting on $30 million in reserves while 4 campuses (Moorhead, Southwest, Winona and Bemidji) are facing severe budget deficits. MnSCU is hoarding money and wasting valuable resources. I hope a legislator will look into this and make sure money allocated goes to the campuses - not for MnSCU to sit on. The amount of money MnSCU itself takes away from the campuses to support itself is outrageous.

Treat all Minnesotas Universities like we treat the U. New stadiums for everyone, right.
