Welcome to Minneapolis-St. Paul SSN

About the chapter

Minneapolis-St. Paul SSN was launched in 2010 to bring together a collection of university faculty and administrators with individuals from government, business and non-profit communities to share ideas and analyses of state and national political and policy challenges. Out of town SSN guests typically make a public presentation, conduct a scholarly seminar, and meet over dinner with SSN members and community friends.
