Study: CNM Economic Impact
Economic Contribution of Central New Mexico Community College
Analysis of Investment Effectiveness and Economic Growth
Central New Mexico Community College (CNM) generates a wide array of benefits. Students benefit from higher personal income, and society benefits from cost savings associated with reduced welfare and unemployment, improved health, and reduced crime. Education, however, requires a substantial investment on the part of students and taxpayers. All of the education stakeholders, therefore, want to know if they are getting their money's worth.
[from the Introduction]
Using FY 2010-2011 data for investment analysis and economic growth analysis, Economic Modeling Specialists, Inc. helped CNM investigate the attractiveness of its returns as a public training provider relative to alternative public investments. Along with a PowerPoint presentation highlighting the study's findings, the following documents include the report itself, an Overview/Fact Sheet, an Executive Summary, and five analyses from specific stakeholder perspectives.
