Kansas Centers for Economic Education

Although KCEE is hosted by the W. Frank Barton School of Business at Wichita State University (WSU) and is a separate legal entity, the Council also partners with all six regional Centers for Economic Education at the state’s Regents universities. Through an array of graduate credit courses and special workshops, teachers are introduced to exciting ways to integrate economic concepts and economic decision-making skills into their existing classroom curriculum.  See what opportunities are being offered in Kansas on our EVENTS page.
