In addition to providing education, Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs) also contribute to a community’s economic development. TCUs have direct economic impacts through employment and any multiplier effect, and indirect impacts including helping to create an educated workforce, supporting small business development through specialized programs, and creating a market for goods and services in the local community.  Our research found that TCUs in an eight-state region average $217,517,072 in revenue and $285,431,536 in assets.
