Blinn provides $370.1 million annual benefit for local economies

The Blinn College District makes a $370.1 million economic impact on its local business community each year, according to a new study presented to the Blinn Board of Trustees during its regular meeting Tuesday night.

“As an economic driver for the communities we serve, it is gratifying to see these figures and recognize their importance,” said Charles Moser, Chair of the Blinn College District Board of Trustees. “Blinn strives to be both an excellent institution of higher education and a supportive neighbor to local businesses throughout our service area.”

The study, conducted by Emsi, a leading provider of economic impact studies to educational institutions, shows that Blinn’s annual economic impact supports the equivalent of 6,010 jobs each year. The $370.1 million total includes $242.1 million in added income for Blinn students who enter the workforce with newly acquired knowledge and skills.

“While Blinn provides students the education and skills they need to compete in tomorrow’s economy, it also provides a real benefit to today’s business economy,” said Dr. Mary Hensley, Chancellor of the Blinn College District. “From operational spending and construction to the benefits of an affordable education, Blinn is proud of its positive economic benefits to Central Texas.”
