The Contribution of the University of Hawai'i at Manoa to Hawai'i's Economy in 2007

Posted March 13, 2009 | Categories: Hawaii's Economy

UH Manoa is an integral part of Hawai`i’s economy. Along with its role in educating citizens and conducting cutting edge research, the state’s flagship campus generates significant economic activity for the state of Hawai’i. Last fiscal year the Manoa campus and related entities spent $1.1 billion in the local economy, creating 21,000 jobs. UHM’s total direct and indirect economic impact to the state was $1.9 billion, $950 million of which was paid as wages to local residents. In 2007 UHM received $299 million in state funds and was able to generate an additional $800 million in spending in the local economy. Every dollar the state invests in UH Manoa generates $5.34 in spending here in Hawai`i.
