Economic Impact Report
Impact goes beyond students
In just one year, Bloomsburg University added more than $350 million to the economy of Northeastern Pennsylvania, but that figure only scratches the surface of the school’s true value.
The vibrations from the economic and opportunity engine created by the university go far beyond the spending and positive social impact of its approximately 10,000 full- and part-time students and 1,000 faculty and staff, according to a study by Idaho-based Economic Modeling Specialists International. From helping to create a more productive workforce to being a magnet that attracts new businesses and industry, BU’s benefits touch every corner of the state.
Dodds takes third at 10,000 meters at NCAA Championships
Kate Dodds finished third at 10,000 meters to earn All-American honors at the 2015 NCAA Division II Track and Field national championships being hosted by Grand Valley State. Dodds finished in school record time of 34:52.26. "Kate ran a brilliant race," said Huskies head coach Bernie Empie. "Hovering near the back of the field for over 5000, she moved up in the field each time the pack began to splinter. Her last 5k was 17:14. Her patience paid off as she closed the last 1000m as well as anyone in the race. It was inspiring and an unbelievable trace to watch."
