Fuller, S & Wilde, SJ 2006, 'The economic value of Southern Cross University campuses to their regional economies: a campus-based input-output analysis', report to Centre for Enterprise Development and Research: CEDAR Research report no. 4, Southern Cross University, Coffs Harbour, NSW.


This paper examines the economic impact of the three main regional campuses of Southern Cross University (SCU) on their immediate regions. These campuses are located at (1) Lismore, (2) Tweed Gold Coast and (3) Coffs Harbour. The immediate region has been defined as the Local Government Area of Lismore City for the Lismore campus, the Local Government Area of Tweed for the Tweed Gold Coast campus, and the Local Government Areas of Coffs Harbour, Bellingen and Nambucca for the Coffs campus. These latter three local government areas form a collective community known as the Coffs Coast region.
