A Message from the Chair
Our Department has a long and distinguished history, and we continue this tradition of excellence today. We are a large, highly-ranked Department within what is universally acknowledged as one of the very best public universities in the country. For decades we have been known especially, but by no means exclusively, for research that applies economics to the challenging and important policy questions of the day.
The Department today continues this tradition of excellence. More
