Recently, Director of Education Christine Storms, instructor Adam Spees, and students from the Business Law class at Globe University- Minneapolis attended Hill Day at the Minnesota State Capitol along with other Minnesota career college students and faculty.
Each year the Minnesota Career College Association (MCCA) invites member schools to participate in this event to ensure that, “elected officials know that our students come from the local community, and our graduates stay in our communities,” according to the MCCA.
Globe University students were able to meet and listen to members of the Senate Higher Education Committee including Representative Bud Nornes (R). Representative Nornes graduated from a career college and has long been a supporter of career college education.
Students from Globe University-Minneapolis’ Business Law class were able to tour the Capitol and meet their representatives and senators.
“Hill Day is an excellent opportunity for students to witness our state government at work, and to make their legislators aware of the issues important to today’s college students. It was a great opportunity for our students to hear our lawmakers and look at the process from a different point of view,” Christine said.
