Community colleges contribute to the development of regional economies by affordably educating the local workforce in competitive 21st century skills. Using economic modeling, we can understand the distributional effects of these institutions and observe their direct and indirect impacts.

REMI Economic Analyst Katy Koon, Business Development Analyst Guyesha Blackshear and Business Development Intern Henry Higgins will be hosting “Exploring the Economic Contributions of Community Colleges,” our upcoming webinar on Thursday, July 15 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. (ET).

During this presentation, we will use our Tax-PI/DEI model to assess the dynamic economic and fiscal impacts of community colleges and to demonstrate how these programs affect workforce development, tax revenues and expenditures, income and regional economic development.
