IU contributes $10 billion to Indiana economy
A study commissioned by Indiana University has determined the school contributed nearly $10 billion to the Hoosier state’s economy in the 2018-2019 fiscal year. If that sounds like something Dr. Evil might say, consider the many ways a state’s flagship university contributes economic value, including student success, research and innovation, entrepreneurship, and economic development. The university says its alumni contribute an additional $7 billion. Hooray, college!
