Jolly named to lead Minnesota Philanthropy Partners
ST. PAUL, Minn. – Minnesota Philanthropy Partners welcomed Eric J. Jolly, Ph.D. as its new president and chief executive officer on Aug. 3. Jolly succeeds Carleen K. Rhodes, who led the organization for a dozen years and retired in June. “I love that community foundations collect the dreams of many people toward a shared goal,” he said of the role philanthropy plays in civic life. He fell in love with Minnesota and Saint Paul, because among other things, “the state has the largest amount of personal time in volunteerism in the nation and the greatest amount of personal philanthropy.”

Jolly arrives at MN Partners after 11 years as president and CEO of the Science Museum of Minnesota. He has a doctorate in psychology and also served in academic-leadership roles. He is chair of the National Academies of Science, a widely published author and has served as a columnist for several publications.

“Dr. Jolly’s range of experience in organizational and philanthropic leadership, as well as in education and community engagement, stood out among the candidates for this leadership position,” said Mary Brainerd, MN Partners board chair and president and CEO of HealthPartners. “The board and staff are eager to see how he envisions our work in new ways.”

Jolly will oversee the implementation of the Strategic Framework adopted by MN Partners this year, as well as its Racial Equity Framework, which focuses on advancing racial equity in the state through achieving specific goals such as closing the achievement gap in education between minority and white students.

MN Partners includes The Saint Paul Foundation, Minnesota Community Foundation, F. R. Bigelow Foundation, Mardag Foundation and 2,000 other charitable organizations and donor funds that are committed to solving complex community issues by strategically investing funds entrusted to the Foundations. Together, the Foundations and donors made $74 million in grants to nonprofits, projects and initiatives in the East Metro and across Minnesota in 2014. Learn more at mnpartners.org.

SMSC appoints conservation officers to enforce game laws on reservation
PRIOR LAKE, Minn. – On Aug. 18, the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC) signed a joint powers agreement with Scott County, Shakopee and Prior Lake to enforce conservation laws on tribal land.
The agreement follows a joint powers agreement signed in July with the State of Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The SMSC’s three conservation officers are licensed by the Minnesota Board of Peace Officers Standards and Training.

Through the joint powers agreements, the SMSC’s conservation officers are licensed and recognized by the State of Minnesota. Similar to state conservation officers, their main role is to educate people about conservation laws and cite violators. They are authorized to cite SMSC members and members of the general public for hunting and fishing violations on SMSC fee and trust land, such as trespassing on non-hunting lands, baiting deer, and violating possession limits. To hunt on SMSC lands, a person must hold a license issued by the Mdewakanton Conservation and Enforcement Agency.

The conservation officers’ work is independent from criminal law enforcement, which will continue to be performed by the Scott County Sheriff’s Department and the Prior Lake and Shakopee police departments. The agreement signed yesterday authorizes the SMSC’s conservation officers to respond in a support role when local law enforcement agencies need assistance with emergency situations such as domestic complaints or vehicle accidents.
