When the Minnesota Legislature convened on January 3, nearly 30% of legislators were be new to the State Capitol. Although 54 legislators are alumni of the University of Minnesota, many new legislators are not familiar with the important University work that relies on state funding. 

This session, we need your help educating this new legislature about the University’s statewide impact. Beginning in January, we will provide UMN Advocates with opportunities to build relationships with your elected officials and share how University education, research, and outreach benefit your local community.
