ABAC economic impact swells to $530 million

TIFTON — Thanks to a higher number of students, more employees, and more expensive off-campus housing, the economic impact of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College on south Georgia soared to a record $529,838,507 in Fiscal Year 2017, according to a recent statewide study.

The University System of Georgia sanctioned the statewide economic impact study, which was conducted by Dr. Jeffrey M. Humphreys, director of the Selig Center for Economic Growth in the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business.
