The Department of Economics provides opportunities for our students to get involved with peers at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Economics Student Leadership Council (ESLC)

Economics Student Leadership Council (ESLC) is the undergraduate student voice in the department. The mission of ESLC is to provide leadership and support of engagement activities for economics majors and minors. Student members participate in the planning and implementation of ESLC programs and events with the support of a faculty advisor.

Membership is typically for one academic year (August–May), though a student may serve just one semester or continue their membership into multiple years.

To join ESLC, a student must:

  • Be an economics major or minor
  • Commit to attending monthly organizational meetings
  • Commit to attending all major ESLC events (2-3 per semester)

To get involved with ESLC in Spring 2022, please email Faculty Advisor Niroj Bhattarai.
