|The Issues & Actions Conference is held every year in April to set the agenda of MPIRG and to select its issues and campaigns. It is the mechanism by which MPIRG continues to be responsive to the needs of students and community members.
Issues // MPIRG works on three core issues at a time. Issues are chosen democratically, with each fee-paying student allowed to vote. Issues last for three years and are staggered.
Affordable Higher Education
Health Care for All
Moving Forward Minnesota
Projects // In addition, we have a number of campus-led initiatives or projects that run concurrently as our statewide priorities.
Gender & Sexuality Initiatives
Campaigns // Every year a campaign is chosen for each issue. MPIRG is currently in the process of determing the specific legislative foci for each of its three major campaigns and its projects. The Board of Directors will make this determination in October of 2010. Stay tuned for more updates!
