For cohorts graduating from our 18 member institutions from 2006 to 2018, 70 percent stayed in Minnesota after graduation, contributing to the state’s workforce and strengthening the tax base.

Our students also graduate ready to move into careers and further their education, with 93 percent of 2021 graduates employed, in the military, pursing additional education or engaged in volunteer service (such as Peace Corps or mission work).
