IU Impact Study
The Indiana Business Research Center conducted an extensive analysis of the economic benefits of the Indiana University system on the state of Indiana and of IU’s eight campuses on the regions they serve.
The resulting reports present IU’s core activities related to education and research as well as the economic benefits of collateral activities such as university spending associated with its core mission or the economic value of, for example, the service-learning that mobilizes students to work for free in the community. The study adopted a rigorous methodology to provide a realistic assessment of the many dimensions of IU’s economic footprint. This report presents policymakers, university officials and Indiana taxpayers with comprehensive yet conservative estimates of the many ways the state benefits from the university.
