According to The Gazette, Colorado Springs is ranked 8th in the nation among “intellectual hubs” out of 50 of the largest metro areas studies by WalletHub.com. In comparison, Denver was number 28.
UCCS spokesman, Tom Hutton, pointed to the growth of UCCS and the presence of Colorado College, Pikes Peak Community College, the Air Force Academy and others as some possible reasons for the high ranking. And the officers corp at area military installations add more educated individuals to the population as does the tech sector, and many bright retirees who move here from all over the world.
Some of the factors used to identify intellectual hubs by WalletHub, a financial network, included “education level” and “quality of education”.
Here’s some of what makes Colorado Springs so high on the list:
• Second in percentage of high school diploma holders
• Fourth in percentage of college or associate degree holders
• 15th in percentage of workers with jobs in computer, engineering and science
• 22nd in percentage of graduate or professional degree holders
• 23rd in percentage of bachelor’s degree holders
• 31st in public school system ranking
