For the sixth year, Minnesota State Mankato has received Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system awards for financial and facilities management excellence.

The awards, recognizing outstanding leadership and team effort, were presented at the MnSCU Chief Financial and Facilities Officers Conference in February.

The University was one of six institutions earning the 2007 Excellence in Financial Management Award, and one of six receiving the 2007 Excellence in Facilities Management Award. It was the only university to win in both categories.

Laura M. King, vice chancellor and chief financial officer for the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, lauded the winning institutions for working hard "to increase efficiency and enhance the assets of our system . . . we know their hard work pays off for our students and the people of Minnesota."

Minnesota State Mankato has received the Excellence in Facilities Management Award for seven consecutive years (2001-2007), and the Excellence in Financial Management Award for six of the last seven years (except for 2003).

Financial management awards are for significant contributions to increased efficiency and effectiveness of finances and administrative services. Facilities management awards are for successful and timely completion of capital improvement and repair projects, increased efficiency and effectiveness of space use throughout the institution, and customer service excellence to students, staff and faculty.

The finance awards program started in 1997. Facilities management awards were added in 1999. Award winners are selected from nominations made by presidents and college and university leadership.

The Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system comprises 32 state universities, community colleges, technical colleges and combined community and technical colleges located on 53 campuses across the state. The system serves approximately 242,000 students annually in credit-based courses and another 140,000 in non-credit courses.
