The Economic Impacts of Iowa State University in Fiscal 2006


  • Swenson, David A.
  • Eathington, Liesl


Iowa State University has a strong economic impact in the state of Iowa. A portion of that impact is attributable to the university's role educating Iowa students and providing community services via its Extension services and through other outreach activities. Another portion of the university's impact is due to its role as center for a wide variety of research activities -- activities that are funded largely by non-Iowa firms and governments. In addition, ISU students directly and indirectly contribute strongly to the central Iowa economy. This report measures the value of ISU to the overall Iowa economy.
