Our Mission

PCEE's mission is two-fold: To maintain and enhance Purdue University’s national leadership position in the field of economic education and to directly offer services to school systems in Indiana's Benton, Carroll, Clinton, Fountain, Montgomery, Tippecanoe, Warren, and White counties.


The Purdue Center for Economic Education (PCEE) seeks to conduct research, teach Purdue students and educators, develop curriculum materials, and engage in school and community programs that improve both economic literacy and economic outcomes in society.  While we will on occasion work directly with K-12 students, our center’s model will continue to focus on equipping teachers to develop the concepts of economic education, including financial literacy, career development, and entrepreneurship, with their students.


The PCEE seeks to develop research, curriculum, and engagement efforts in the integration of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and economic education.  We will continue our center’s efforts to incorporate computer and classroom technologies into economic curriculum materials.  We will also continue to investigate the benefits to both economic and mathematics education of linking the two fields in practice.
