President Bruss to chair Minnesota Private College Council

Wednesday, June 5, 2013
Dan R. Bruss, Ph.D.

The Minnesota Private College Council announced today that Bethany President Dan Bruss will chair the executive committee beginning July 1, 2013. 

The Minnesota Private College Council and its affiliate, the Minnesota Private College Fund, represent private nonprofit higher education in Minnesota. Seventeen institutions are members; they share a liberal arts focus. 

Minnesota Private College Council’s mission is to serve members' shared needs and advocate for public policy that:
  • Meets the educational needs of students,
  • Enhances private higher education, and
  • Strengthens Minnesota's economic and civic fabric.
  • The State Grant program is a primary focus of our advocacy efforts.

A separate organization, the Minnesota Private College Fund serves member colleges primarily by raising funds for student scholarships and the colleges’ operations. The Fund is a 501(c)(3) organization eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations.

The two nonprofits share the same board members and represent the same seventeen nonprofit colleges and universities.
