In the context of the era of knowledge economy, most scholars generally agree that a thriving education makes a flourishing country, but few have noticed that the quality of higher education is diverse and complex. Under the background, we divide the quality of higher education into teaching quality and scientific research quality, studying the impact and contribution of higher education quality to regional economic development to help colleges and universities find the direction and focus of future development. This paper uses panel data about 31 provinces from 2012 to 2018 and uses an improved C-D model to study the impact and contribution of teaching quality and scientific research quality to regional economic development. The empirical results show that the quality of teaching and scientific research in higher education is positively correlated with regional economic development, and the contribution of scientific research quality to regional economic development is bigger than that of teaching quality. So we conclude that the improvement of teaching quality and the improvement of scientific research quality can promote the development of the regional economy to a certain extent, and the contribution rate of scientific research quality is higher.
