Higher Education: Building Connecticut's Workforce. Report on 2005-06 Graduates
DeLisa, Cynthia; Placzek, Dana
Connecticut Department of Higher Education (NJ1)
The Departments of Labor and Higher Education, working in close collaboration with the constituent units of public higher education, present this comprehensive report on the employment of graduates of the public colleges and universities. This report summarizes the employment and compensation experience of students who graduated from the State's 18 public colleges in 2006, and provides detailed information on these employed graduates by industry sector, degree program and college. This project builds upon the Department of Labor's work on the Connecticut Employment and Training Commission's annual report of employment outcomes for the State's education and training programs, and the Department of Higher Education's efforts to assess the employment success of its graduates through its annual accountability report. Overall, 68 percent of the 17,726 graduates were found to be working in Connecticut seven to nine months after their graduation in a wide variety of industry sectors, including educational services, health care, professional and technical services, manufacturing and retail trade.
