Elon University

The Partnership

Elon University (Elon) is a private university, located on a 656-acre campus in central North Carolina, renowned as a national model for engaged learning and student success. The breadth and depth of services at Elon have a far reach that impacts not only citizens throughout Alamance County and Guilford County, but also across North Carolina and the globe.

The Action

Tripp Umbach was retained by Elon University to provide comprehensive analysis on the economic, employment, government revenue, and community benefits that arise from university operations.

Tripp Umbach work will provide analysis and develop a narrative that fits the communication plans of Elon University and the multiple economic and community benefits associated with the organization.

The Outcome

Elon University is a driving engine for education throughout North Carolina, linked with outreach and engagement with stakeholders and communities across the state. With two campuses — in Alamance County and Guilford County — Elon generates economic and community impact throughout the state and in localized regions. With nearly 36,000 alumni, Elon University alumni generated a combined economic impact of 8.6 billion throughout the United States (nationally).
