ULethbridge, Lethbridge College consider strategies for keeping graduates in the community

The University of Lethbridge and Lethbridge College are working together on ways to keep their graduates in the community. CTV News reports that only 38% of ULethbridge alumni and 50% of Lethbridge College graduates choose to stay in southern Alberta. A series of reports have recently highlighted some of the reasons why graduates leave the region, such as concerns with employment opportunities, public safety, and transportation accessibility. The university and college aim to collaborate with community partners to encourage graduates to stay in the region. “[W]e continue to have dialogue around this,” said ULethbridge Executive Director of Student Services Mark Slomp. “Working together to really benefit the south west region with the influx and retention of graduates.”
