Sign our petition to reinstate Minnesota Men's Track and field and join over 25,000 athletes, alumni, and community members who feel wronged by this decision and believe in our program.
We are asking for 5-year commitments, where you would support the teams operations fund for the same amount each year. This would be considered a verbal pledge, that is documented yet revocable. Your name and your amount will remain fully anonymous, unless you want it published. This verbal commitment is documented yet revocable.
The Board of Regents are the main group we are attempting to educate. The Board of Regents will decide whether to approve the proposal to cut Men’s Track and Field on October 9, 2020 at their Full Board Meeting, beginning around 9 am
We need 6 or more of the 12 Regents to vote against the proposal. The 12 members of the Board of Regents articulate a vision for the University and works to ensure the University of Minnesota fulfills its mission of education,
and outreach. They are a volunteer civilian board and serve six-year terms.
