The University of Mississippi’s annual economic impact totals $2.9 billion and enables 43,121 jobs across the state, which means that one out of every 37 jobs in Mississippi is supported by the activities of UM and its students. A new report of the university’s impact also revealed a return of $4.40 in state tax revenue and public sector savings for every dollar in state funds that supports the university.
