Connecticut produces thousands of college graduates every year, but does the emerging economic order require the skills they actually possess? What are Connecticut’s employers, educators, and economic development leaders doing to retain a generation of students who entered college at the beginning of the recession — and where will these young adults be in five years? Please join The Connecticut Mirror, the state’s award-winning public policy news organization, and its partner, the Wyomissing Foundation, in this lively discussion with economists, entrepreneurs and experts on Monday, Oct. 21, at 6:30 p.m. in the Wilde Auditorium at the University of Hartford.
