Return on Investment
- New York state contributed over $58 million to the university during the time period of this study. Given the university's economic impact, for every $1 the state contributes to the university,there is more than $7 in additional economic output for the state.
- The university's presence creates jobs in the Binghamton area and in New York state, resulting in increased tax revenues and the earning of additional human and intellectual capital for the state.
- Because Binghamton University's full-time student retention rates and graduation rates highly exceed those of its comparison institutions, increased investment in the university will yield enhanced effects on the region and New York state in the form of jobs and economic growth. This is especially true because the majority of Binghamton University alumni remain in New York state.
