The Center for Economic Education at ESU began in 1984 in the School of Business. Since then the School of Business has reorganized a couple of times and Center along with the economics program moved to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences in the Department of Mathematics, Computer Science, and Economics in 2001.
We could not be more pleased with the support of our colleagues, chair, and dean in the College. We are grateful to the university for encouraging us to think in creative ways to serve teachers in the area and supporting the Center.
Our summer program is vibrant and somewhat unique. We began with traditional classes in a regular classroom. From that we evolved to having self contained workshops and seminars in conjunction with partners in the community. These sessions typically foster a dynamic exchange of ideas. Teachers and executives find them friendly, professional, and stimulating. The amount of time contributed by our partners is significant and without their enthusiastic commitment, we would not be nearly as effective.
