Education

Universities and community colleges often need to demonstrate their impact on the regions around them to gain funding for critical programs, or to learn the demand for retraining a population for new careers after government spending cuts or industry shifts. 

Chmura is providing clients with the data and analysis they need to prepare for shifts in government spending in the Mid-Atlantic region, to show that the benefits of career colleges in Louisville, Kentucky far outweigh the costs to students and taxpayers, or to prove that programs in Virginia which educate aging-out foster youth make more economic sense than the impact of unemployment, welfare costs, and a higher rate of incarceration.

Our services include:

  • Economic Impact and Return on Investment of Community Colleges and Universities
  • Economic Impact of Programs at Higher Education Institutions
  • Forecasting Curriculum based on In-Demand Occupations
  • Market Research and Forecast of Demand for Enrollment at Private and Public Institutions
  • Education Policy Analysis
