Asked whether he might run for office again, particularly governor, Rybak said he did not want to “trivialize” his Generation Next work with political machinations. He said Gov. Mark Dayton is likely to run again and he supports Dayton. “It’s not even on my radar,” he said of another political office.

His predecessor, Sharon Sayles Belton, went on to become a senior fellow at the U’s Humphrey Institute before becoming vice president of community relations and government affairs for Thomson Reuters in 2010. Former Minneapolis Mayor Al Hofstede is a registered lobbyist whose clients include those with business before City Hall. Another longtime mayor, Don Fraser, formed the Committee on the Achievement Gap to bring experts together to discuss how to improve minority ­students’ academic performance.

Staff writers Steve Brandt and Eric Roper contributed to this report.
