Resource and Referral Center
“A Place to Connect, a Goal to Empower”
The goal of the Minneapolis College Resource and Referral Center is to connect our currently enrolled students with supportive community networks, resources and opportunities to ease obstacles interfering with their success. The Resource and Referral Center is part of Minneapolis College's Student Support Center, located in T.2300.
Through referrals, direct service and outside agency coordination, our students will gain access, information and support to address specific needs and gain self-sufficiency. We connect students to community and government agencies, healthcare providers and other partner organizations to address their immediate and/or long term needs and goals. Students will gain enhanced knowledge of navigating the systems on and off campus, expanding their network of support.
Community resource fairs and workshops are held throughout the year to explore, expand and strengthen ties to the community and provide important resources for students.
Federal Funding for Program Supporting Student Parents Discontinued
In September, Linda Byrd-Johnson, Ph.D., senior director of the Student Services Division at the U.S. Department of Education, notified Minneapolis College that federal funding for the College’s Child Care Access Means Parents In School (CCAMPIS) program is being discontinued. Students who applied for CCAMPIS after September 1 were denied grant eligibility.
