We have the higher-ed talent to fuel your business.

With nearly 60 colleges and universities in the region producing world-class talent, there’s strength in numbers. In fact, we have 41,000 college students in Fort Wayne alone, and we draw from more than 230,000 annual graduates from top (R1 and R2) research universities within 200 miles. It’s a powerful engine that drives a workforce with cutting-edge knowledge and skills.

But what sets us apart is our collaboration. Our higher-ed community has a proven track record of working with local businesses, tailoring degree programs that fit employers’ needs. Working side-by-side, we’re producing graduates who are prepared to step in and contribute on Day 1.
