Also known as:
Minnesota Job Skills Partnership Board

The board shall assist in the development of training programs that train and place workers. The board administers the state's Dislocated Worker Program, and the Job Skills Partnership grant programs.
Created by the 1983 Legislature, the MJSP is a state agency governed by a 12 member board of directors who represent Minnesota businesses, labor, government and educational institutions. The MJSP was created to act as a catalyst between Minnesota's post-secondary educational or other non-profit training institutions and business/industry for the purpose of designing and implementing training programs that meet current and future employer needs and offer trainees long-term professional growth and economic opportunity.
The twelve members include the Commissioner of the Department of Employment and Economic Development, the Chancellor of MNSCU, and the President of the University of Minnesota. The chair and seven members are appointed by the
Governor, and two by the legislature. Terms are staggered.
The Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) provides administrative support to the Board.
