(May 2015) The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus continues to be a major engine of economic growth in the state, creating thousands of jobs, attracting millions in research dollars and directly contributing $2.6 billion to the Colorado economy in fiscal year 2012-13.

The university’s latest economic impact reports, released last summer, showed significant growth. The Anschutz Medical Campus had a direct impact of $2.6 billion in fiscal year 2012-13, up from $2.05 billion in 2009-10. The campus also supported 21,954 jobs, compared with 17,800 jobs in 2009-10.

Our medical researchers pioneer countless new treatments, our professors are sought after experts on everything from commodities to Alzheimer’s disease and our students receive outstanding value for their tuition dollar.”
