(Brainerd, MN) — Central Lakes College, in principle, will be expanding their Farm Business Management program from Ridgewater College, which will take place July 1st, 2021.

The plan in transition involves Ridgewater College transferring FBM program to CLC as well as Minnesota West Community and Technical College. The collaboration between the two institutions would include taking on new faculty, with two coming to CLC and six going to Minnesota West.

This proposed change would result in a more universal FBM education delivery model, streamlined education process, reduction in redundancies at Individual college and projected long-term improved fiscal outcomes for Minnesota State College and University system.
