Thread: Here We Grow Again

    No, Savannah’s port is the most cost effective on the East Coast. It went to Alabama because South Ga labor was a huge question mark.

    Plus our package offer to Hyundai and Volvo weren’t as aggressive. Volvo had concerns about local education systems, crime, and quality of life.

    It shouldn't be based on that.

    The point I was making is that we are WAY beyond the level of the schools we're lumped in with. That designation limits the scope of what we receive from the state and the level of research activity we're allowed to conduct, not whether or not we have a particular facility on our campus. I could be wrong, but it could also limit the extent of what doctorates we're allowed to offer as well.

    We also now have around a ~$700 million dollar economic impact on the state after the consolidation with Armstrong.

    The time for being designated a top tier university in the state by the BoR is here.

    Fair enough.

    Were the questions about education were more in regards to K-12 than undergrad/grad level?

    Port location wasn't a primary factor to Hyundai. They only export 5% of production, mostly to Canada. There was already an automotive supplier base in Alabama thanks to Mercedes and Honda. There's nothing like that in south GA and sorry but there's also a lack of skilled labor so the only way they would have looked at it probably would be if they could be tax free for life.
