Notes

Abstract: Because of the changing financial climate facing public higher education, university administrators are seeking concrete economic justifications for their budget requests from state legislatures. Consequently economic impact studies, which provide such information, are increasingly on the “radar scope” of university administrators. The purpose of this paper is to describe the results of a recent economic impact study of Bowling Green State University, Ohio. The most widely cited finding of the study was that for every dollar Bowling Green State University received in state support it returned a conservative estimate of $8 in economic activity to Ohio’s economy. In addition, the advantages to geography and geographers of being involved in such studies are addressed.
