The Economics Department Advisory Group (EDAG) is a small group of alumni of UNC Economics that convenes each semester to learn more about instruction in Economics at Carolina and to advise the faculty on issues related to student development.  These advisors, both graduate program and undergraduate alums, have self-identified as individuals who care passionately about their alma mater and about the students currently studying Economics at UNC.  They have proved to be a valuable assset to our department’s faculty and students as we reposition the major to provide our students with the best possible preparation for “the real world”, whether that is finding a job, preparing for graduate school, or simply learning deeply about the economic workings of sectors of the world’s economy.

We have had three meetings of the Advisory Group since its inaugural meeting in October 2014.  To learn more about the activity of this group, you’re welcome to read the summaries of the meetings.

We in Economics partner with the Arts and Sciences Foundation in coordinating the membership and activities of the Advisory Group.  Should you be interested in learning more about the EDAG or other ways that you can help the deparrtment, please contact Patrick Conway, chair of Economics, and Ronda Manuel of the Arts and Sciences Foundation.
