Article spotlights SLU’s Sinquefield Center for Applied Economic Research

A recent article in St. Louis University’s campus newspaper University News spotlighted the work being done at the university’s Sinquefield Center for Applied Economic Research.

The Center, founded in 2018 with funding from a $50 million dollar donation to SLU from Rex and Jeanne Sinquefield, conducts research focused on economic growth and social welfare than can inform public policy.

Currently, “we are interested in human capital development,” said Michael Podgursky, P.h.D., the director of the Center. “We want to know where kids [in the education system] are succeeding and failing. We want to find out how we can make education work better in the area.” You can read the complete article online here.
