MUFSC Releases Economic Impact Report for Fiscal Year 2007

In order to measure its impact on the local economy, the Marshall University Forensic Science Center has prepared its first Economic Impact Report. This study measures MUFSC’s total economic contribution to the state of West Virginia and the results are impressive. MUFSC’s programs generated approximately $4.5 million dollars in economic activity and returned 769% on the state’s investment. While MUFSC’s primary purpose will always be to advance the practice of forensic science and aid law enforcement, this report vividly illustrates the organization’s impact on the local economy.
