About the College Connector and Private Sector

Local colleges and universities turn out 5,000 graduates annually, many of whom are eager to pursue professional opportunities and live in Mercer, Lawrence, Venango, and surrounding counties.

College Connector is a collaboration between the regional colleges producing these graduates and the businesses eager to hire them.



The four strategic lanes for the College Private Sector Connector are Health and Life Sciences, Financial Services, Manufacturing, and Technology.

Various events throughout the year will highlight these industries.
