Lakeland College ROI 23.2%
The economic impact numbers are in, and they are impressive.

Economic Modeling Specialists Inc. used data from 2012-13 to study regional economic impact ($168 million), benefits to taxpayers and society, plus the return on investment (ROI) students received from their education.

The study found that for every $1 students invest in a Lakeland College education, they receive a cumulative $4.50 in higher future earnings over the course of their working careers. This equates to a 23.2 per cent internal rate of return on their investment. For more details, read Lakeland College education is money well spent.
