The Minnesota Public Interest Research Group (MPIRG) is a grassroots, nonpartisan, nonprofit, student-directed organization that empowers and trains students and engages the community to take collective action in the public interest throughout the state of Minnesota. Together, we can catalyze change.

MPIRG's mission is to articulate and pursue through the media, the institutions of government, the courts and other legal means the concerns of students on issues of general public interest.

These areas will include environmental preservation, consumer protection, and the role of corporation and government agencies in the lives of the average citizen.
