The Center for Economic Education, one of 13 regional centers throughout Indiana, was first established in spring 1988 under the direction of its present director, Dr. Greg Valentine. The center has been an affiliate with the National Council on Economic Education (NCEE) since its inception. The National Council on Economic Education and the Indiana Council for Economic Education and its 13 regional centers have been formed in order to provide elementary and secondary teachers with programs and materials to get economics and personal finance education into the classroom and to help students apply in their lives what they learn in school.

In order to accomplish this task, the National Council, the Indiana Council, and the Center for Economic Education at USI have developed a comprehensive partnership with leaders from business, labor, agriculture, education, and government dedicated to increasing economic literacy in Indiana. Our mission is to prepare students to become active citizens and productive members of our economy by providing them with the ability to make sound economic decisions. How do we do that? By providing and delivering effective methods and materials to Indiana’s elementary and secondary teachers’ workshops and intensive summer classes at either no charge or on a cost-recovery basis.

For more information on how the center for economic education at USI can help you, your students, and your school corporation, please contact us.
