For spring 2022, the UTC will host two Seminar Series presentations. The overarching focus will be these topics vital to transportation today — funding and workforce development. Both events are open to all interested parties and will be hosted on zoom. The presentations kick off at noon and run for one hour. Participants are encouraged to pose questions.
