AdvanceCT is relaunching a program aimed at keeping students who graduate from Connecticut’s 42 colleges and universities in the state.

The nonprofit has relaunched CampusCT with the Governor’s Workforce Council, with the goal of “providing students with more meaningful professional experiences in their college years and highlighting the rich, diverse quality of life in the state.” 

According to AdvanceCT, students who have work-based experiences in Connecticut during college are more likely to remain in-state.

The relaunch includes a new website, career portal with job listings and insights from employers, and a “refreshed” brand identity.

“Graduates remaining in Connecticut benefit from staying connected to family, a high quality of life, attractive job opportunities and a variety of career pathways,” said John Bourdeaux, President of AdvanceCT. “CampusCT serves as a tool for students to find meaningful professional connections and to change perceptions of what living in Connecticut is like as a young professional.”   

There are more than 150,000 college students pursuing degrees in the state, according to AdvanceCT’s announcement.
