The Center for Economic Education, Chadron State College goals have been to increase the economic literacy, financial literacy, entrepreneurship literacy and critical thinking skills of teachers, students and the general public in our service region.
Our goals were achieved through undergraduate courses, graduate courses, workshops and distribution of educational materials from the National Council on Economic Education, Nebraska Council on Economic Education, Federal Reserve System and Center for Economic Education.
The Center has scheduled a graduate course each summer (June) with the focus on certified K-12 Nebraska teachers. The Topics course content has varied each summer with the Guffey Scholarship available for certified K-12 Nebraska teachers and administrators. Master of Business Administration students have utilized the course as part of their Plan of Study for the MBA program at Chadron State.
The Center has hosted and coordinated the Annual World Food Day Teleconference each year in October. Each spring the Center provided an Economics exam to the area high school students as part of the Scholastics Day at Chadron State College. Traditionally, the Center has been a strong advocate and supporter of the Stock Market Game and served as a mentor for the Game.
