Devinder Malhotra

Chancellor, Minnesota State

Description

In 2018, Devinder Malhotra was named chancellor of Minnesota State, the nation’s third-largest higher education system. He was instrumental in the Minnesota State board’s adoption of Equity 2030, which seeks to close educational-equity gaps across the system’s seven universities and 30 colleges by 2030.

In the wake of George Floyd’s murder, Malhotra convened a statewide task force on law enforcement education reform, bringing together diverse stakeholders to provide recommendations pertaining to anti-racist law enforcement education. Also last year, he joined forces with the 3M Community Coalition to help steer a $50 million investment in higher education and workforce development.
