UNC-A Economic Driver

I totally realize ASU's effect on the local economy is much greater, but still thought this was interesting about a smaller sister school:

UNC Asheville ‘an engine of economic growth’
ASHEVILLE – A recent study demonstrates how a single campus in the University of North Carolina System helps drive the local economy.

The study found that UNC Asheville raised the economic output in the Asheville area by $450 million in 2017 – a $100 million increase from a similar study five years ago. For every state dollar appropriated to the school, SYNEVA Economics LLC calculated, local economic output increases by $11.30.
