Events

To encourage the exchange of new ideas and fresh perspectives, the Institute hosts a robust schedule of conferences, workshops, and lectures featuring leading scholars. Other events expose students to a wide range of economic expertise. Discussions designed for broader public audiences apply this expertise to topical social and policy issues.

The institute collaborates with scholars across and beyond the University who suggest and organize programs of interest. We especially recognize the Graduate Student Advisory Board for their input on student-focused programming.
