Fond du Lac Community College Task Force

Also known as:
Governor's Fond du Lac Community College Task Force
Active dates:1986 - June 1989
The task force is to study the feasibility of establishing a coordinate campus of Arrowhead Community College on the Fond du Lac Indian reservation that would be open and available to all. The task force shall report to the legislature on the results of its study by February 1, 1987.  The task force shall provide copies of its report to the state board for community colleges and the higher education coordinating board. Those boards shall respond to the legislature on the report of the task force by March 1, 1987.

The Task Force examined a broad range of issues related to post-secondary education in the Fond du Lac area. Regular meetings were held at a number of area facilities to acquaint members with the area. Discussion and evaluation of a number of items included Arrowhead Community College Region program and enrollment patterns, the services to the Indian People Program, Minnesota Indian Education Needs Assessment, governance of a new community college, enrollment trends and needs, and related discussions. 

The Task Force found that a potential for a community college presence in the Cloquet/Duluth/Superior area (also referred to as the Fond du Lac service area) exists. To meet area post-secondary needs, the Task Force recommends that a pilot project called the Fond du Lac Higher Education Center be established under the governance and administration of the Arrowhead Community College Region.
