BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (WCCO) – Hundreds of college students attended a leadership summit Saturday afternoon at the Bloomington Hilton with Governor Mark Dayton.

The governor spoke about issues affecting higher education, including his efforts to make college more affordable for Minnesotans.

“We invested most of that new money in education at all levels, from early childhood right through post-secondary,” Dayton said. “[We] increased higher education funding by $250 million.”

The newly-enacted state budget was also discussed. The $250 million investment to higher education froze tuition for state colleges and universities and increased financial aid.
