Kloos is no stranger to the college, serving in various roles for the last two decades, including interim president since July.

In presenting Kloos with her new nametag, Minnesota State Chancellor Devinder Malhotra said he was certain he found the right person for the job.

Our rationale for our colleges and universities is very simple: we are here to rid higher education of its elitist and insular character. We want to be embedded in the community. I know in Lori Kloos, we have found a leader who is committed to breaking down those barriers.

A first-generation college student, and product of the Minnesota State system, Kloos has served the college for over two decades, most recently serving as the vice president of administration and chief operating officer.
