Executive Summary

This report assesses the impact of 22 of Monroe Community College’s (MCC) academic programs and one MCC non-credit certificate program on the county economy and the benefits generated by each program for its students. These programs were selected by MCC based on employer’s expressed demand for trained workers in these fields. Follow- ing are some of the key findings of this analysis.

the average job growth is expected to be +3.8% . Since there are no institutional completers in the county, annually, there is a gap of 394 job openings. MCC’s Applied Integrated Technology/Mechatronics program students generated an estimated $32.4 thousand in added income to the Monroe County economy in FY 2015-16. This is an annual economic impact of $2,160 per student. The undiscounted lifetime earnings increase per student is $699.6 thousand . For every dollar a student invests in their education in MCC’s Applied Integrated Technology/Mechatronics program, they will receive $13.20 back over the course of their working lives. The corresponding internal rate of return is 35.3% for students in the Applied Integrated Technol- ogy/Mechatronics program. AUTOMOTIVE TECHNOLOGIES In FY 2015-16, MCC enrolled 196 students in its Auto- motive Technologies programs. The average number of annual job openings in these occupations from 2016- 2026 is expected to be 424, and the average job growth is expected to be +9.7% . Annually, there are 395 more job openings than institutional completers in the county for Automotive Technologies programs. MCC’s Automotive Technologies programs alumni generated an estimated $15.1 million in added income to the Monroe County economy in FY 2015-16. This is an annual economic impact of $2,616 per student. The undiscounted lifetime earnings increase per student is $1 million . For every dollar a student invests in their education in MCC’s

ACCOUNTING In FY 2015-16, MCC enrolled 119 students in its Accounting program. The average number of annual job openings in these occupations from 2016-2026 is expected to be 3,894, and the average job growth is expected to be +4.5% . Annually, there are 3,874 more job openings than institutional completers in the county for the Accounting program. MCC’s Accounting program alumni generated an estimated $22.5 million in added income to the Monroe County economy in FY 2015- 16. This is an annual economic impact of $2,630 per student. 1 The undiscounted lifetime earnings increase per student is $769.6 thousand . For every dollar a student invests in their education in MCC’s Accounting program, they will receive $6.70 back over the course of their working lives. The corresponding internal rate of return is 21.9% for students in the Accounting program. APPLIED INTEGRATED TECHNOLOGY/ MECHATRONICS In FY 2015-16, MCC enrolled four students in its Applied Integrated Technology/Mechatronics program. The average number of annual job openings in these occupations from 2016-2026 is expected to be 394, and 1 Due to data limitations, a duplicated student headcount was used to calculated the economic impact per student. In other words, a student was counted multiple times if he or she was enrolled at MCC for more than one year. This results in a very conservative economic impact per student calculation. This holds true for all programs.

MONROE COMMUNITY COLLEGE. | FEBRUARY 2018

1. Introduction

SUNY Monroe Community College (MCC), established in 1961, has today grown to serve 27,000 credit students. The College is led by Dr. Anne Kress, President. The College’s service region, for the purpose of this report, consists of Monroe County in New York.

While MCC offers a variety of programs, this study is concerned with considering the economic impacts derived from the former students of 20 of its programs, along with the potential economic impacts of two hypo- thetical programs and one non-credit certificate pro- gram. These programs include: • Accounting • Applied Integrated Technology/Mechatronics • Automotive Technologies • Clinical & Medical Laboratory Technology • Computer Information Systems • Computer Science • Computer Systems Technology • Construction Technology • Electrical Engineering Technologies • Entry Level Health Care (Hypothetical) • Heating Ventilation & Air Conditioning, including Solar Thermal Technologies • Hospitality: Hotel Management, Travel & Tourism, Event Planning, Golf Management • Dental Assisting • Dental Hygiene

• Information & Network Technology • Licensed Practical & Vocational Nurses (Hypo- thetical) • Mechanical Engineering Technologies • Optical System Technology • Radiologic Technology

• Registered Nursing • Surgical Technology • Precision Tooling & Machining • Welding Fabrication

The first component of this study analyzes the career pathways for each program. Each program maps to a number of occupations which we use to measure the number of annual openings available to completers of each program. We also account for the completers of each program across other institutions in Monroe County to determine if there will be a gap or a surplus of workers in those occupations. Finally, the median hourly wage and top companies hiring in Monroe County are mentioned. The second component of the study measures the eco- nomic impact from the alumni of each program. While

IMPORTANT NOTE When reviewing the alumni impact estimated in this study, it’s important to note that it reports the impact in the form of added income rather than sales. Sales includes all of the intermediary costs associated with producing goods and services. Income, on the other hand, is a net measure that excludes these intermediary costs and is synonymous with gross regional product (GRP) and value added. For this reason, it is a more meaningful measure of new economic activity than sales.

PROGRAM BASED ECONOMIC IMPACT ANALYSIS

the programs each affect the county in a variety of ways, many of them difficult to quantify, this study is concerned with considering the economic benefits of their alumni. The programs are designed to help students achieve their individual potential and develop the knowledge, skills, and abilities they need to have fulfilling and prosperous careers. However, the value of MCC consists of more than simply influencing the lives of students. The College’s program offerings supply employers with workers to make their businesses more productive. To derive results, we rely on a specialized Multi-Regional Social Accounting Matrix (MR-SAM) model to calculate the added income created in the

Monroe County economy as a result of increased con- sumer spending and the added knowledge, skills, and abilities of students. The third component of the study measures the benefits generated by students of the programs. We perform an investment analysis to determine how the money spent by the program’s students on their education performs as an investment over time. The students’ investment in this case consists of their out-of-pocket expenses and the opportunity cost of attending the College as opposed to working. In return for these investments, students receive a lifetime of higher earnings.

TABLE 1.2: Jobs by major industry sector in Monroe County, 2016*

The study uses a wide array of data that are based on several sources, including the FY 2015-16 academic and financial reports from MCC; industry and employment data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and Census Bureau; outputs of Emsi’s impact model and MR-SAM model; and a variety of published materials relating education to social behavior. THE MONROE COUNTY ECONOMY MCC serves Monroe County in New York. Since the Col- lege was first established, it has been serving Monroe County by enhancing the workforce, providing local residents with access to higher education opportunities, and preparing students for highly-skilled, technical professions. Table 1.1, on the previous page, summa- rizes the breakdown of the county economy by major industrial sector, with details on labor and non-labor income. Labor income refers to wages, salaries, and proprietors’ income. Non-labor income refers to profits, rents, and other forms of investment income. Together, labor and non-labor income comprise the county’s total income, which can also be considered as the county’s gross regional product (GRP). As shown in Table 1.1, the total income, or GRP, of Monroe County is approximately $45.5 billion, equal to the sum of labor income ($27.7 billion) and non-labor income ($17.8 billion). In section 2: Economic Impact Analysis, we use the total added income as the mea- sure of the relative impact of the College on the county economy. Table 1.2 provides the breakdown of jobs by industry in Monroe County. Among the county’s non-government industry sectors, the Health Care & Social Assistance sector is the largest employer, supporting 73,097 jobs or 15.0% of total employment in the county. The second largest employer is the Retail Trade sector, supporting 45,919 jobs or 9.4% of the county’s total employment. Altogether, the county supports 486,710 jobs. 2

PROGRAM BASED ECONOMIC IMPACT ANALYSIS

2. Economic Impact Analysis

ACCOUNTING

In FY 2015-16, MCC enrolled 119 students in its Accounting program. Of these students, 13 graduated with an associate degree in FY 2015-16. CAREER PATHWAYS The Accounting program can lead students into a num- ber of occupations, which may include: Budget Ana- lysts, Tax Preparers, and Bookkeeping, Accounting, and Auditing Clerks. TABLE 2.1: Aggregated Program to Occupation Mapping Measures Number of Occupations 34 Using the average number of annual openings for these occupations (3,894) and subtracting the FY 2015-16 institutional completers in the county that may fill these openings (20), we arrive at a gap of 3,874 unfilled openings. There are 3,395 unique job postings at the associate degree level or below for these occupations in Monroe County. The top three posting companies are University of Rochester, Paychex, Inc., and Rochester General Health System. Projected Avg. Annual Job Openings (2016-2026) 3,894 +4.5% Projected Avg. Job Growth (2016-2026) Median Hourly Wage (2016) $21.89

PROGRAM ALUMNI IMPACT Former students of MCC’s Accounting program added $22.5 million in income to the Monroe County economy in FY 2015-16. This figure represents the increased wages collected by former students active today in the county workforce as a direct result of their education, the increased output of businesses that employ these students, and the multiplier effects that occur. TABLE 2.2: Metrics Per Student and Total Impact Lifetime Earnings Increase per Student $769.6 thousand Annual Economic Impact per Student* $2.6 thousand Total Alumni Impact in FY 2015-16 $22.5 million * Due to data limitations, a duplicated student headcount was used to calcu- late the economic impact per student, generating a very conservative result. STUDENT RETURN ON INVESTMENT To earn a degree in the program, students experience costs in the form of tuition and fees, books and supplies, and the opportunity cost of attending school instead of working. In return for this investment, students can earn higher wages. For every dollar students invest in their education in the program, they will receive $6.70 back over the course of their working lives. This investment can also be seen in terms of a rate of return of 21.9%. This is an impressive return, especially when compared to the U.S. stock market 30-year average of 10.1% return.
