Participation in the 2020 Census helps produce accurate, reliable statistics on employment, infrastructure, education, economic opportunities and other important characteristics of communities. This information helps policymakers, local officials, companies and organizations understand and assess the resources and needs of the people, places and businesses in communities across the country.

"The Facebook Live panels have been a fantastic opportunity to showcase our alumni and faculty and address topics that are relevant to today's climate," said Lori Tuttle, executive director of alumni relations and reunion giving. "Winthrop is proud to have an alumnus lead the 2020 U.S. Census, and we look forward to this panel discussion."
