Economic Tools

The Office of Economic Development is a resource at the university providing access to various economic tools so faculty and staff can better assess the economic impact of research projects.  We act as a conduit to organizations who perform economic impact accessments and studies and also have oversight for the Office of Research Analytics (ORA), an office devoted to assisting with and analying the impact of research.

ORA staff members are experts in numerous areas, including but not limited to conducting preliminary feasibility studies, analyzing data, conducting statistical research design and analysis, providing software solutions and web-based tools for data collection and analysis and convening customized seminars and workshops on topics.
