Broome Community College in New York has released the results of an EMSI impact study that concludes the college has a $290 million impact on the regional and state economy.

“This report details the role that the college plays in promoting economic development, enhancing students’ careers, and improving the overall quality of life,” said Dr. Spraggs. “The report was created with a vast array of data sources and standard, peer-reviewed analysis taking into account hard facts and dollar values. As the College is funded by students and local and state taxpayers, I believe it’s important for the community to know specifically what the financial contributions of the College are and what educational and economic benefits students and community members continue to receive.”
