The State of Minnesota’s 91st Legislature passed Senate File 2415 in the spring 2019 session. This bill included a directive for the Minnesota State colleges and universities system, stating that three additional colleges must offer the opportunity to earn a Z-Degree by the academic year 2020-2021. It’s now Fall 2020 and Minnesota State is offering five new zero cost degrees (Z-Degrees) at five different colleges, developed in just 12 months. Attendees will learn of the struggles, the shared victories, and the commitment needed to do the seemingly impossible.

Learning Outcomes:
Participants will learn how Minnesota State in one year, expanded from 1 to 6 colleges offering Zero Textbook Cost (Z) Degrees:
•Building a Foundation with OER
•Assessing Readiness to offer a Z Degree
•Supporting the Work
•Managing and Meeting the Challenge
•Promoting the Results
Resources will be shared for those who wish to reuse or modify our approach.
