Below you will find opportunities to get involved on campus, network with business leaders, and more. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or would like to chat about economics.
Junto Economics Reading Group
The Junto Reading Group is a great opportunity to discuss economic ideas and policies in real-time. The group hosts scholars from UK and other universities to discuss relevant economic issues. See the group's webpage for more information.
ISFE Lecture Series
The Institute for the Study of Free Enterprise has regular lectures open to students and the public. See ISFE's webpage for upcoming events. These events are also posted throughout Gatton the week before.
As part of the lecture series, UK hosted the Institute for Justice to discuss occupational licensing.
UK students competed at the 2019 Econ Games at Northern Kentucky University. Keep an eye out for next year's competition dates!
Undergraduate Research Opportunities
Students have presented their research at UK's Showcase for Undergraduate Scholars and the Kentucky Economic Association's annual conference. If you are interested in working on a research project, I encourage you to discuss your ideas with me or your current professor. See the Showcase and KEA webpages for details.
