The Department of Economics is thrilled to announce the renaming of our Access Committee to the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee. This group of faculty, staff, and students was founded in 2016 with a general aim to foster an inclusive environment for all community members, especially for students of traditionally underrepresented groups. We seek to recognize the unique barriers and challenges faced by first-generation students and students of color, and to showcase Economics as a lucrative, and valuable field for underrepresented students to pursue.

Each fall the Foster School of Business’s Career Center puts on one of the University’s largest Career Fairs. The fair offers students opportunities to speak with employers specifically looking to hire students in the business and economics majors. This year, employers were delighted with the number of economics students they were able to speak with. In order to ensure the safety of all participants, the 2020 event took place entirely online.
The Roe Term Fellowship was established in June of this year to support PhD level students annually, over a five-year period. This fellowship was established by Jeff Roe and his wife, Perri. Jeff is an alumnus of the department, a member of our alumni Visiting Committee, and was honored at the 2018 Department of Economics Graduation Celebration as our Distinguished Alumnus.
