Broward College Economic Impact Study

economic Impact banner

Broward College has a dynamic effect on the community it serves. Specifically, Broward County, the region and the state of Florida receive concrete and direct economic benefits from Broward College, its graduates, its faculty and staff and its programs that result in a total economic impact of $1 billion — representing 1.5% of the total regional economy and roughly 23,340 average-wage jobs.

A December 2012 report from Economic Modeling Specialists, Inc., details the significant role Broward College plays in the local and regional economy:
  • Students benefit from increased earnings and improved lifestyles.
  • Taxpayers benefit from a larger economy and lower social costs. 
  • The community as a whole benefits from increased job and investment opportunities, higher business revenues, greater availability of public funds and an eased tax burden. 
The report provides a look at the investment from the student, social and taxpayer perspectives as well as a economic growth analysis that includes the effect of college operations, student spending, productivity and transfer.
The material from the report is available in three documents:
