Sinclair's Economic Impact Tops $340m

In 125 years, Sinclair Community College has grown from offering just a few classes for 55 men at the Dayton YMCA to preparing 23,500 students this semester for careers or more higher education.

Sinclair’s legacy makes it one of the oldest continuously operating community college in the country. Today, the public college is also among the largest. The downtown campus is not only an economic engine for the Dayton area with a direct impact of $344 million in 2010-11, but a national leader in community college issues.
