It’s a Public University Value to Help Improve Graduates’ Employment and Earnings Potential.

Did you know that, one year after graduation, 2,287 of 2,821, or 81%, of UNCG bachelor’s degree recipients from the class of 2012 were employed in the state of North Carolina? (Source: http://nctower.com/)

The Association for Public and Land-Grant Universities (APLU) has launched a month-long campaign, called “Public University Values” (#PublicUValues), designed to help better explain key facts about the value of public universities and to clarify some misconceptions (i.e., masses of students graduating with six figures in debt and no job).

Week three’s focus is “It’s a Public University Value to Help Improve Graduates’ Employment and Earnings Potential”. To learn more about the campaign and about this week’s focus, read the APLU Fact Sheet on Employment and Earnings Potential.
