The Greater Manchester region is home to more institutions of higher learning than any other area north of Boston. From colleges and universities to trade and vocational schools, these institutions are hubs of knowledge and expertise that employ experts in an array of fields and industries and that produce the next generation of entrepreneurs, professionals, employees and managers.

If properly harnessed, these institutions of higher learning can be among the region's leading economic development engines.

Such will be the focus of an expert panel discussion at the upcoming Access Greater Manchester meeting at 3 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 19, at the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, 54 Hanover St., in Manchester. 

Sharing their expertise and insights on the panel will be: 

  • Bill Gillett, Dean, School of Business, Southern New Hampshire University
  • Susan Huard, President, Manchester Community College
  • Dan Reagan, Interim Dean, UNH Manchester

The panelists will share what their respective institutions can and do offer the region and discuss how businesses and municipalities can best take advantage of the resource that is our region's higher education institutions.

If you care about improving economic development in your municipality, you won't want to miss this panel discussion!
