BGSU delivers solid economic benefit to state, study finds

In addition to providing a college education to about 20,000 students a year, a new study has found that Bowling Green State University is also an economic engine that pumps more than $700 million annually into the Ohio economy.

Economist Dr. Michael Carroll of the University’s Center for Regional Development (formerly the Center for Policy Analysis and Public Service), examined BGSU’s economic impact on the state and presented his findings Friday to the University’s Board of Trustees.

According to his report, “Measuring Bowling Green State University’s Impact on Ohio’s Economy,” BGSU generated more money in tax revenues than it received in state appropriations in 2002.
