The community is invited to attend the next Rosenmeier Forum with Minnesota State Demographer Susan Brower at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, November 16 in the Chalberg Theatre, Central Lakes College Brainerd campus.
Brower will lecture on the results of Minnesota’s 2020 Census and its impact on the state of Minnesota, legislative and congressional redistricting, Minnesota’s economy, and its effects on Minnesota’s educational system.
As Minnesota State Demographer, Brower directs the Minnesota State Demographic Center. She travels the state talking with Minnesotans about the new social and economic realities that are brought about by recent demographic shifts. Her work applies an understanding of demographic trends to changes in a range of areas including the state’s economy and workforce, education, health, immigration and rural population changes. Brower joined the State Demographic Center after working as a researcher on the Minnesota Compass project at Wilder Research in St. Paul. Prior to that, she worked at the Population Studies Center at the University of Michigan.
Steve Wenzel, Executive Director of the Gordon Rosenmeier Center for State and Local Government said, “We are really fortunate to have Susan Brower speak at our Rosenmeier Forum. The State Demographer travels the state bringing critical data, facts and statistics to business and labor groups, schools and colleges, and elected governmental bodies at the state and local level. Brower gives people the picture of what is happening in our state as a result of the 2020 state and national U.S. Census. Her remarks will surely be informative and compelling.”
