Steven Rosenstone


Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU)




As baby boomers retire, many Minnesota employers are looking to the MnSCU system to supply them with the next generation of workers. Steven Rosenstone, who became chancellor in 2011, is attempting to steer seven state universities and 24 community and technical colleges to offer programs that benefit students and employers. His key challenges include strains with faculty, which served him with a recent vote of “no confidence,” and about 40 percent of Minnesota community and technical college students who need remedial work before they can begin college-level work.
