It's a new day. Lansing employers are transitioning to knowledge-based economy, building a youthful creative class and retaining new, talented professionals is a critical factor. What does that mean for Lansing? We need students. What do students need? Jobs, jobs, jobs. So let's put them to work!
By increasing student awareness of Lansing's professional, cultural, and entertainment opportunities, Lansing will secure a vibrant, active future economy of fresh young professionals.The Lansing area's key assets in attaining this goal? Three higher education institutions in a 3 mile radius, of course!
Mayor Virg Bernero's 2007 Linking Lansing & U Initiative instigated regional interest in weaving students and emerging professionals into the economic fiber of Michigan's Capital City. As Lansing continues to emerge as a fab entertainment and cultural destination, it is time to showcase the city as the trendy urban space it has become for our future entrepreneurs, business and civic leaders.
