Economic Impact

SUNY Oswego influences both the lives of its students and the regional economy.

SUNY Oswego creates value in many ways. The university plays a key role in helping students increase their employability and achieve their individual potential. The university also facilitates new research developments and draws visitors and students to the region, generating new dollars and opportunities for the Central New York Region. Its student and employee volunteers support the regional economy through the output and employment generated by regional businesses and organizations.
This economic impact study, conducted by Emsi Burning Glass, measures the economic impacts created by SUNY Oswego on the business community and the benefits the university generates in return for the investments made by its key stakeholder groups—students, taxpayers and society.
