Research Mission

Within the Economics Department, we wish to create an environment that will enable our faculty to maintain an active and diverse research agenda. By doing so, we seek to attract and retain high quality faculty to the Department. We aim to allow faculty to lend their expertise to regional, national and international interests, and outreach.
