Post Bulletin and Republican-Eagle: Counting all college kids in the 2020 census
December 22, 2019: Minnesota State College Southeast and University of Wisconsin-River Falls are preparing to cooperate and market for the census.
When the U.S. census hits next year in April, some college students will be gearing up to graduate while others are finishing up the academic year.
In the midst of it all, college students should research their responsibility and duty to complete the national census in order to be counted correctly to allot future resources, officials agree. ...
Josiah Litant, the dean of students at MSC Southeast, told RiverTown Multimedia: "We are beginning to take steps to prepare for the 2020 census on both our Red Wing and Winona campuses. We had a few people from the college attend a census training a few weeks ago to begin to look at how we can support full student engagement and participation in the census. So our student senates and staff have been participating in regional efforts to learn more about the census and student participation, but we are not yet at the point of conducting direct student education or outreach. We will definitely be continuing our efforts in the weeks to come."
