SOUTH BEND — Around $2.46 billion. That’s how much money on average Notre Dame University brings into the South Bend area every single year, according to a newly-released economic impact study.
The money comes through operational and capital investments, research spending, spending by students, visitors and event attendees.
The study shows 10,000 Notre Dame alumni live in Indiana and the university supports over 16,000 jobs in the region.
Every five years Notre Dame measures its impact on the local economy.
Thanks to growing partnerships, this year’s study expanded to include Elkhart and Marshall counties.
