How Anchor Institutions Drive Impact for their Regions

Patrick Harker, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, will discuss the economic impact of anchor institutions – higher education and hospitals – on regional economies. Anchor institutions are among the largest employers in many regions and can drive economic development and growth. With changes in both healthcare delivery and the higher education landscape, these sectors may also be facing significant disruption. President Harker will speak about the role anchors play in regional economies. His speech will be followed by a moderated discussion between President Harker and University of North Carolina at Greensboro Chancellor, Frank Gilliam.
