Lewis and Clark students earn a cumulative $5.70 in higher future earnings for every $1 invested in their education here at the college (EMSI, 2016).
Associate degree graduates will earn $1,302,900 over their working lifetime, an increase of $270,900 compared to someone with only a high school diploma (Emsi, 2016).
Approximately 98 percent of Lewis and Clark students remain in Illinois after graduation, where they live, work and pay taxes. Added tax revenue from those students and increased output of businesses amounts to $127.9 million, plus $6.5 million saved due to the reduced demand for government-funded services in the state (EMSI, 2016).
For every $1 in costs, taxpayers reap $3.20 in benefits, thanks to Lewis and Clark (Emsi, 2016).
