Cayuga Community College in upstate New York has a $267.8 million impact on its regional economy, according to a socioeconomic study done by EMSI.
The report was commissioned to provide an independent assessment of the college’s socioeconomic contribution to its service area, [CCC president Daniel P] Larson noted. “It helps us fulfill our obligation for accountability to the community that invests in us and sends many residents to Cayuga for higher education,” he said.
Eventually, the findings will support advocacy and fund-raising on behalf of the college and will “help guide our planning and decisions about programs, services and resources,” added Larson.
