The University of North Georgia, across its five campuses and online programs, had an estimated $620 million economic impact on Northeast Georgia in the 2017 fiscal year. A recent study measured direct and indirect spending that contributes to the university’s service region. “This study is a timely reminder of the significant role UNG has in advancing economic growth and prosperity in the areas we serve,” President Bonita C. Jacobs said in a press release. “The report complements our ongoing work with industry and community partners to increase educational attainment and regional economic development efforts that enhance this region.”
