One of the most important recent innovations changes for the Department of Economics is the establishment of the Department of Economics Advisory Board. Through the Board, the direction and decisions of the Department can benefit from the collective experience and insights of a broad range of constituents. Our exceptional group of Board Members include community, business and academic leaders who have all volunteered to advise the Department as we work together to advance our research, teaching and service objectives.
