How the Atlanta region’s colleges and universities
are enriching Georgia
The Atlanta region's vast array of colleges and universities means higher education is a major sector of the economy in the metro area and the state as a whole. In all, these institutions create a $10.8 billion total economic impact and 130,000 jobs in Georgia.
While these numbers are indeed impressive, they don’t communicate how the lives of citizens across Georgia are sustained, enriched and transformed by Atlanta-area colleges and universities.
So while our online report offers excellent statistics on this impact – which you can navigate through the buttons below or the links on the left – you can download a .pdf copy that includes stories of Georgians who have experienced this impact.
