Institutional Research Study 08-03: Economic Impact of the University of Delaware on Newark and the State of Delaware

During fall 2007, the Office of Institutional Research and Planning conducted a study to examine the economic impact of the University of Delaware on the local community and state of Delaware. This study replicated the economic impact model previously employed in 1999 (IRS 00-02 Executive Summary). A survey was administered to students, faculty and staff on the Newark campus, as well as local businesses in the Newark community. Using the responses from these three groups, this study sought to determine the full impact that student, faculty, staff, and University expenditures have on the local and state economy.
