Principally serving the cities of Lafayette, West Lafayette, and Tippecanoe County, Indiana, GLC helps lead economic and workforce development initiatives across the entire region. Greater Lafayette’s workforce laborshed stretches across nine Indiana counties, both east and west of the I-65 corridor between Indianapolis and Chicago.
Our regional economy continues to grow in size, as does the mix of industries and smart people working here. World-class manufacturers like Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Wabash National, GE Aviation, Caterpillar, and Saab are among the region's most recognizable employers. More people are employed in Greater Lafayette than ever and the jobs of the future continue to be created here.
Without a doubt, this is one of the smartest working regions on the planet. Of course, we are proud to be the home of Purdue University, which is among the U.S.'s most respected research and educational institutions. We are proud to be makers, thinkers, and paradigm-breakers. That’s why we recently launched our new regional brand, which celebrates all that makes us Greater.
