The Purdue University Research Center in Economics (PURCE) hosts a number of events each year that highlight our faculty, their research, and the research's ability to help community groups, businesses, and government address economic challenges. The center also hosts visitors to campus for lectures and more intimate conversations; many events are open to the public while some are reserved for students or PURCE partners and supporters.

Economic Policy Luncheons

PURCE welcomes community, business and government leaders to monthly economic policy luncheons, which include a faculty talk, catered lunch, networking, and Q&A.

For our final event of 2023, PURCE Kozuch Director Kevin Mumford will share data on college-going in the U.S. Fewer high school graduates across the country are choosing to pursue higher education, with Indiana ranking particularly low. What is behind this decline? Does it matter that fewer high school graduates are choosing to go college?

Registration for the December 6 event has closed.

Stay tuned for details on our next economic policy luncheon, set for January 24, 2024.
