Community Impact

University of New Mexico Boosts New Mexico Economy

The University of New Mexico is not just a foremost educational institution for students in the community. It’s also a prime moneymaker for the state. A new study from the University’s Bureau of Business and Economic Research (BBER) shows how the university brings money into the New Mexico economy. According to the report, during the 2010 fiscal year, UNM operations accounted for $1.86 billion in expenditures and more than 25,000 jobs, making it the largest employer in the state. Total salaries and benefits were $1.03 billion. The report, “Economic Impact of the University of New Mexico on the State of New Mexico,” is available on the UNM Vice President for Research website.
