The Need for Economic Education

"There is a huge difference between the public's awareness of political facts and its understanding of business facts. Some 35% qualify as well-informed about politics. Only 3% are well-informed about business and economics".
Paul Volcker, Former Chairman of Federal Reserve Board.

Our Mission

The declared mission of the Center for Economic Education is to institute a broad based community education program to promote economic literacy primarily in Southeastern region of North Carolina. The Center marshals resources of the University and local community to (a) identify economics education needs in public schools; (b) conduct productive and meaningful programs to fill those needs; and (c) provide leadership, guidance, consultation and economic education resource materials.

Our Goal

Our goal is establish a well planned effective economic education program in every community in Southeastern North Carolina to graduate from high school students who have the ability, competence and confidence to make informed economic choices in their respective roles as consumers, producers, employers, employees, borrowers, lenders, savers, investors, and, above all, as voters. In this important endeavor, the Center in not alone. The Center is affiliated with the National Council on Economic Education and the North Carolina Council on Economic Education.
