Center for Economic Education

The University of Kansas Center for Economic Education works to ensure that all students graduate from high school with skills they need to succeed: to be able to think and choose responsibly as producers, consumers, savers, investors, voters, and participants in a global society.

We achieve these results primarily through teacher training and professional development programs.

Economic Education programs help teachers (and thousands of students through the multiplier effect) become more familiar with the concepts and language of economics, business and finance. A person who is economically literate understands the integral role that economic reasoning plays in making personal, career and life choices.
