Glover Writes BDN Article on Ways to Keep College Grads in Bangor Area

Rob Glover, an assistant professor of Honors and political science at the University of Maine, wrote an article for the Bangor Daily News titled “5 ways to keep recent college grads in the Bangor area.” The article cited research conducted by Glover’s students Cameron Huston, Sarah Nicols, Spencer Warmuth and Gareth Warr. The students worked in collaboration with the city of Bangor and city councilors to determine what makes recent UMaine graduates settle within the Bangor area. Glover says the city could help retain more college graduates by growing opportunities for internship and work experience; coordinating events and programming to get students to Bangor; marketing the downtown area; providing quality affordable housing; and supporting quality public school systems.
