Minnesota Legislature

Office of the Revisor of Statutes

    Subdivision 1. Authority; limits. The Board of Trustees of the Minnesota State Colleges
and Universities and the Board of Regents of the University of Minnesota may develop programs
to exchange faculty between colleges or schools of education and school districts, subject to
section 122A.56.
The programs must be used to assist in improving teacher education by involving current
teachers in education courses and placing postsecondary faculty in elementary and secondary
classrooms. Programs must include exchanges that extend beyond the immediate service area of
the institution to address the needs of different types of schools, students, and teachers.
    Subd. 2. Compensation. State money for faculty exchange programs is to compensate for
expenses that are unavoidable and beyond the normal living expenses exchange participants
would incur if they were not involved in this exchange. The Board of Trustees of the Minnesota
State Colleges and Universities, the Board of Regents of the University of Minnesota, and
their respective campuses, in conjunction with the participating school districts, must control
costs for all participants as much as possible, through means such as arranging housing
exchanges, providing campus housing, and providing university, state, or school district cars
for transportation. The boards and campuses may seek other sources of funding to supplement
these appropriations, if necessary.
