A new study released today by the Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities found that St. Lawrence University (which holds the broadcast license for NCPR) has a “grand total” economic impact of $275 million a year.
That includes 913 direct jobs at the college in Canton, making the school one of the region’s biggest employers.
See the full breakdown here. SLU put out this statement a short time ago:
St. Lawrence University President William L. Fox stated, “We have always known that for St. Lawrence University to thrive, our region must also thrive.
We want to be a good neighbor and have a positive, lasting impact here.
The results of this study show concretely many ways that St. Lawrence is contributing to the area that is our home.”
