Since being established in 2018, the Institute for the Study of Economic Growth has grown to five current faculty, three Research Fellows, four Barton School faculty supported by our research fund, an administrative assistant, a communications specialist and multiple graduate assistants. We also expect to add more graduate students and support more current Barton School faculty.
As Research Fellows, ISEG faculty members conduct applied research on the theme of economic growth. They are active in networking with people from other centers, groups in Kansas, and the region that have an interest in policy issues related to the mission of ISEG. They produce policy papers, reports, or book chapters aimed at a policy audience. They also work at promoting change by giving speeches, legislative testimony, media appearances, or other presentation of their research.
The ISEG team is also proud to work with our Advisory Board to provide additional expert advice and recommendations.
