Join Vinit Jagdish, Department of Economics, to learn more about the discipline of Economics, examine and discuss best practices in teaching, and form a community of colleagues.

Part 2 of a two-part series...

This mini course provides a brief overview of topics covered in an introductory microeconomics course: When do economists think markets work efficiently? When do economists think markets fail? We will examine the effectiveness of the market mechanism in allocating scarce resources in a variety of settings.

The idea behind the Faculty GUR Group is that faculty–as well as students–need to sustain their general education. With this in mind, the Faculty GUR Group was formed to bring together faculty from different departments across the university in a learning community that will seek to enhance each participant’s general education by relying on each other’s domain of expertise.
