As mentioned UMN is deploying MPLS in our campus network.  
We are using to provide separate routing domains with different 
policies without requiring separate infrastructure or requiring l2 
across the entire campus infrastructure.  The easy example is 

That is the primary reason, but there are nice side effects, though.  
We are now able to convert our security video VLAN to a VRF and 
have routing in to, so when things break it is much easier to debug. 

Any way, how could we not deploy a technology with an 
abbreviation like MPLS.  A major part of our Twin Cities campus is 
in Minneapolis.  For those of you not from the upper midwest, Mpls 
is a common abbreviation for Minneapolis.  A fact that is of 
unending amusement to the IETF when ever they are in town. Man, 
us network geeks are lame. :)
