Robert Sandy Economics Seminar

Dr. Robert Sandy, Professor Emeritus for Economics, created this engaging seminar in order to bring economists to IUPUI, from outside and inside of Indiana University. The seminar series presents a wide array of economic topics. Although the seminar’s principal audience are the faculty and students of the Department of Economics in the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI – the seminar is open, and often attracts attendees from across the campus community as well as the general public of Indianapolis.
