Earlier this week the University of Wyoming released a report that was conducted by the university's Office of Research and Economic Development that showed the impact the university provides to the state's economy. The report indicated that the university brings in approximately $130 million in revenue annually, and generates $129 million in economic activity while sustaining over 2,200 jobs.

UW Director of Institutional Education Chad Baldwin says that the report verifies that the university's economic impact is substantial.

Baldwin talks about where most of that $130 million in revenue is generated.

Baldwin added that business services, out-of-state tuition and student expenditures are the other key factors in the amount of revenue brought in every year. Click here to view the complete report.
