ALBERT LEA, Minn. — Community leaders and members are speaking their mind on higher education in southern Minnesota.
Riverland Community College President Dr. Adenuga Atewologun was in Albert Lea today to discuss the future of higher education as part of MnSCU’s “Charting the Future” report.
It discusses six different strategies about the future of MnSCU and higher education in the region.
College leaders say it’s important to give those community members and leaders a voice on the future.
“We know that we are indeed a community college,” Atewologun said “And we’re responsive, we want to be responsive to what are local and community members think. This is their college. We really want them to have that ownership of what we do now and in the future.”
He says it also helps keep college leaders aware of what the needs are in the community and region.
