Employee Development Philosophy Statement
We are committed to developing the talents of Minnesota State Colleges and Universities’ employees. We value our employees and understand that continuous learning benefits the entire system by developing and maintaining employee skills that link directly to achieving organizational goals and objectives. Supporting successful leaders at all levels also builds institutional capacity to better serve our students and our communities. This commitment is realized as a shared responsibility between each employee and each college, university, or the Office of the Chancellor.
