Regents and trustees motivated to improve education, serve state
MINNEAPOLIS -- Former state Rep. Steve Sviggum figures serving on the Board of Regents, which sets policy and direction for the University of Minnesota, is a great opportunity.
So, when forced by a committee of regents to choose between that no-pay job and an $80,000-per-year teaching job with the university's Humphrey School of Public Affairs, he chose principles over paycheck.
"Service is important," Sviggum said. "It has to be about more than stuff in life."
