The study, commissioned by DCC, determined that the Dutchess County economy is $807.4 million stronger annually, as a direct result of the college’s past and current impact on the county.

“This figure represents 7.5 percent of Dutchess County’s total income each year”, said college president Dr. D. David Conklin. “Since we first opened our doors in 1957, the college has been serving our local community by first and foremost providing access to a quality education for everyone in the county.”
