LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — A new report says the University of Wyoming does more than just provide a college education to thousands of students a year.

The report from the university’s Office of Research and Economic Development says UW brings in some $130 million in revenue, spurs about $129 million in economic activity and sustains more than 2,200 jobs annually.

The report studied the revenue that would not have come to Wyoming without the university.

Bill Gern is UW’s vice president for research and economic development.

Gern tells the Casper Star-Tribune (http://bit.ly/1iBOMOu ) that between research funding, business services, out-of-state tuition and other student expenditures, the university’s economic effect is powerful.
