New England Board of Higher Education to Hold Conference on Employability of New England’s College Graduates

The New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE), a NEC member, is hosting a conference next month focused on the employability of New England’s college graduates and what higher education institutions can do to increase post-graduation employment.

Employers in New England often say they cannot find enough skilled technology, healthcare, and advanced manufacturing workers, leading NEBHE to raise the question of New England’s colleges and universities could do more to address these needs.  The conference will bring together employers, education leaders, government leaders, and national experts to engage in a dialogue about how colleges and universities “can better align with the speed, orientation and demands of a ‘gigged’ economy.”

The conference will be held at the Federal Reserve Bank in Boston, MA on October 17, 2016. Read more and register for the event on NEBHE’s website.
