Abstract

Iowa’s regent universities influence both the lives of students and the state economy. The universities support a variety of industries in Iowa, serve state businesses, and benefit society as a whole in Iowa from an expanded economy and improved quality of life. The benefits created by Iowa’s regent universities even extend to the state government through increased tax revenues and public sector savings. This study measures the economic impacts created by Iowa’s regent universities on the business community and the benefits the universities generate in return for the investments made by their key stakeholder groups—students, taxpayers, and society.
