Dear Vanderbilt community,
As a national research institution, we are a community comprising students, scholars and staff from every state in the nation and nearly 100 countries around the globe. With all that we do, we seek to tackle the biggest challenges facing society today and to pursue the many opportunities that our changing world provides. A primary reason we are able to reach as far as we do is because of our roots here in the state of Tennessee. We are proud to call Tennessee home and equally proud that we make a vital impact on our home state.
Today we are releasing the results of an independent analysis of Vanderbilt’s impact on our state. The analysis, conducted by Austin, Texas-based TXP, Inc., finds that the university and medical center had an $8.6 billion economic impact on Tennessee in fiscal year 2011-2012.
Additional key findings include:
We are proud to call Tennessee home and to contribute to the economic vitality of our neighbors here in Nashville and across the state. I know that each of you has choices of where to work and share your talents and passion. I also know and believe that we individually and collectively choose to work at Vanderbilt because of the transformational role our great university plays in our community, our state and our world.
Thank you for your contributions to Vanderbilt and to the great state of Tennessee.
Nicholas S. Zeppos
