Cal State Fullerton’s Center for Economic Education has been awarded five-year affiliation status from the National Center for Economic Education. The status is awarded to campus centers based on their performance in serving the economic education needs of their service area.

The center and its leadership were recently honored during the National Council on Economic Education/National Association of Economic Educators/Global Association of Teachers of Economics Conference in New York City.

“This commendation is expressive of our shared mission and goals, standards and guideline, and aspirations for advancing economic and personal finance education in the nation’s schools,” wrote Robert Duvall, president and NCEE chief executive officer, in the announcement letter to the university, adding that the NCEE “commend[s] your effort in delivering economic education.”

“This is a remarkable achievement for the center,” said Chiara Gratton-Lavoie, director of Cal State Fullerton’s Center for Economic Education. “Not many centers in the national network are granted a five-year affiliation status, so we are obviously very happy about this.”

The Center for Economic Education is part of Cal State Fullerton’s College of Business and Economics. Its purpose is to provide technical economic education services to improve the level of economic understanding in grades K-12, institutions of higher education and the surrounding community. During the fall and spring semesters, the center offers an 11-week stock market simulation for high school students, as well as consultations and workshops for teachers.

The National Council on Economic Education (NCEE) is a nationwide network that promotes economic literacy with students and their teachers. NCEE’s mission is to help students develop the real-life skills they need to succeed: to be able to think and choose responsibly as consumers, savers, investors, citizens, members of the workforce and effective participants in a global economy.
