January 23, 2019

Candidate Forum 2019The University of Minnesota Alumni Association (UMAA), which serves and engages more than 485,000 graduates, has a vested interest in ensuring that the University’s governing body, the Board of Regents, is comprised of highly qualified, mission-driven leaders who are committed to the long-term success of our world-class University.

On January 23, 2019, the UMAA hosted a Regent Candidate Forum on behalf of the State Legislature. Participants in this forum included the fifteen candidates recommended from the Regent Candidate Advisory Council. Below is an audio recording of the 2019 Regent Candidate Forum moderated by Jim du Bois ’87.
