Bowdoin’s Economic Impact on the Surrounding Community


The College is among the top ten largest taxpayers in Brunswick and is the 22nd-largest private employer in the state. These are among the economic impact indicators newly updated on the Treasurer’s website.

The compilation also includes the fact that Bowdoin purchased $16.3 million dollars worth of goods and services from Maine vendors, including $2.79 million from Brunswick vendors, and that Bowdoin students provided 38,248 volunteer hours to Maine organizations (of which 7,389 hours were spent tutoring local students).
