Departmental Research Seminar

The Economic Seminar Series is made possible by a generous donation from Dr. Jacques Artus.

Attending the Fall and Spring Economic Seminar Series is a way to see what industry professionals and leaders are currently working on, and a great way to network with fellow students and industry professionals.

All seminars run from 3:00-4:30. Fall meetings will be held on Zoom.  If you are interested in attending please contact Economic Program Assistant, Michelle Santana for the link.

Please note that seminar locations are subject to change. To confirm the location/Zoom link or if you would like to be included on the seminar mailing list, please contact the Department's Program Assistant, Michelle Santana.
