Center for Economic Education & Entrepreneurship

At the CEEE's 40th Anniversary Celebration, UD President Pat Harker noted, "Because of the CEEE, the state has rigorous and well-articulated content standards in economics, and teachers who are well prepared to teach economics, entrepreneurship and personal finance through lessons that engage and resonate. Young people are now less susceptible to financial insecurity; more aware of our national economic policy; and more informed, more participatory citizens who -- by their votes and their advocacy -- can help shape that policy."

In fact, beginning at a very early age, Delaware’s students are learning how markets work; how conscientious spending, saving and investing can lead to financial security; and how innovation through entrepreneurship is a possibility for all.  The founding mission of the CEEE continues: to point K-12 economics, personal finance and entrepreneurship educators toward effective and ongoing opportunities for professional development; to provide teachers with dynamic, standards-based resources, and to engage students in relevant and experiental programming statewide.

The CEEE, affiliated with the Delaware Council on Economic Education, is able to exponentially broaden its influence because of the unique advanced degree program offered through the University of Delaware. Nowhere else can teachers earn a Master of Arts in Economics & Entrepreneurship for Educators -- a distinction that leaves graduates well-positioned to become change agents in their own school districts, states, and countries.
