As the school year comes to a close, we say farewell and best wishes to retiring Dr. Stephen Karlson, who has served as Director and Co-director of the NIU Center for Economic Education. Dr. Karlson has championed the Economic Concepts Poster Contest and has spent countless hours on the contest. Over the past several years he has been involved with the state Economics Challenge and Personal Finance Challenge by judging and designing of the competitions. He also presented several Virtual Economics and Stock Market Game workshops. Dr. Karlson will be missed. He will be spending his retirement traveling, engaging with fellow railroad enthusiasts, and supporting his favorite sports teams. Go Packers and Badgers!
We welcome Tammy Batson, as our new Co-Director, Department of Economics Instructor.
