The University of Nebraska at Omaha's Contribution to the Omaha Regional Economy
Corcoran, William J.
Metropolitan Universities, v18 n1 p26-29 2007
Education is a primary mission of metropolitan universities. This article measures the value of education at the level of a student credit hour-the metric. It applies this metric to determine the value of education transmitted at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) for one academic year and the total contribution of UNO to the economy of the Omaha metropolitan region. The results show a much larger contribution than typical impact studies indicate.
