Economic Impact Report
Jefferson Community College adds value to the North Country in all its endeavors. From improving the lives of its residents with access to affordable higher education, to adding skilled labor to the workforce, Jefferson continues to impact the tri-county area, state and global communities in a positive manner. With the generous support of the JCC Foundation, the College commissioned Emsi Burning Glass (now Lightcast) to conduct an economic impact analysis. Emsi studied Jefferson’s economic effect on the region and delivered the findings to the College in July 2022. This study measures the economic impacts created by Jefferson on the business community and the benefits the College generates in return for the investments made by its key stakeholder groups—students, taxpayers, and society.
