What: We prepare students to become active citizens and productive members of our economy by providing them with the ability to make sound economic decisions.
Why: Students will be required throughout their lives to make economics decisions important for their own well-being, and to understand and make decisions about public policy issues. A thorough understanding of economics will contribute not only to their personal success, but also to the successes of the businesses, institutions, and governments in which they participate.
