Economic Impact Report

Impact goes beyond students

In just one year, Bloomsburg University added more than $350 million to the economy of Northeastern Pennsylvania, but that figure only scratches the surface of the school’s true value.

The vibrations from the economic and opportunity engine created by the university go far beyond the spending and positive social impact of its approximately 10,000 full- and part-time students and 1,000 faculty and staff, according to a study by Idaho-based Economic Modeling Specialists International. From helping to create a more productive workforce to being a magnet that attracts new businesses and industry, BU’s benefits touch every corner of the state.
