St. Ambrose Local Economic Impact

Updated:

 

An independent study of St. Ambrose University's impact on the local economy was released today. 

The study shows S.A.U. generated $188 million in business spending, $73 million dollars in personal income and created 1,900 jobs in one year. 

The study was completed by the Strategic Economics Group based out of Des Moines and looks specifically at operations and construction spending, student and visitor spending and impact on local taxes. 
     
Representatives said the study is a good indication of the University's commitment to giving back to the community.

"Definitely our focus here is on education and educating our students for future professions and making sure that we get a well-educated workforce in the Quad Cities," representatives said. "But at the same time, we've always understood that we're an economic engine in this community. Until this study, we weren't sure exactly what those impacts were."

The study also found approximately 38% of S.A.U graduates remain in the Q.C.A. workforce after graduation.
