Every year Gustavus participates in an advocacy effort at the Minnesota State Capitol on behalf of the Minnesota State Grant program, which provides need-based financial assistance to approximately one out of four Minnesota college students. It is important to acknowledge and reaffirm the support legislators provide and urge others to support the State Grant program. The event and related activities are free to participants. Participants will spend the morning at the Capitol in personal meetings with House of Representatives and Senate members as well as other activities planned by the Minnesota Private College Council. The afternoon schedule includes a reception with Gustavus alumni who are currently working in government.
Gustavus Day at the Capitol will be held on Wednesday, March 13. Please register for this event before March 11 at https://gustavus.edu/events/capitol/index.php#signupnow.
