2021 Summer Economic Institute for Teachers
Where does the economy go from here?
The 34th Annual Summer Economic Institute for Teachers is a unique opportunity for high school and community college educators to come to Stanford for a week to learn from leading world economists, share resources, and engage in thought-provoking discussions. Educators will leave feeling honored as professionals, intellectually refreshed, and armed with new ideas for their classrooms. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 Summer Institute will be held fully online. View the most up-to-date agenda here: Summer Institute Agenda 2021
