2013 Annual Report

  1. 1. beyond the numbers 2013 Summary Annual report Year In Review
  2. 2. Dear Friends, For 37 years, the Economics Center has been committed to developing responsible decision makers. We teach students how to make good decisions through the Center’s economic and financial education programs, and we equip business leaders with the knowledge Margaret K. Valentine needed to make informed economic development decisions through our research and consulting work. I am proud to report that 2013 was a year of continued success for the Center. We refocused the Center’s educator professional development to align with the Common Core standards. This alignment facilitates the integration of economic and financial education into math, reading and language arts, and social studies. Training teachers represents the highest return on investment, as trained teachers have a recurring impact year after year, classroom after classroom. Our student programs and competitions bring economic concepts to life and help students connect their academic learning with the real world. We increased the number of Ohio teams participating in the Stock Market Game (SMG) by fiftyone percent. We also expanded the social entrepreneurship component of the Student Enterprise (StEP) program; in 2013, we led over 500 students through the business development process as they formed t-shirt companies and coffee shops in their schools. Through the Center’s education programs, students are learning the critical life skills that empower them to make better decisions, transforming their lives, and creating a stronger community. In 2013, the Center’s research and consulting team introduced new product capabilities for clients, including regional compensation analysis and wage benchmarking for specific occupations. The team also launched a new blog, ECONversations, providing unique perspectives on what’s happening in the economy. We remain dedicated to providing insight that prepares leaders to make sound decisions for their business, organization, or community. As Chair of the Economics Center’s Board of Trustees, I would like to thank you for your support of the Economics Center. Your continued involvement with the Center is integral to our success. I would also like to recognize the University of Cincinnati and the Carl H. Lindner College of Business for its valuable support and academic leadership. Finally, I would like to acknowledge the Center’s Board of Trustees and staff for their commitment to our mission. We look forward to continuing to strengthen our community, as we ensure students and business leaders are equipped with the knowledge and resources needed to make responsible decisions. 2012-2013 Highlights: Engaged 11,178 students, grades 4-12, throughout the state in the Stock Market Game; teaching the basics of investing, risk and diversification. Enhanced the economic education of 2,589 elementary students from 30 local elementary schools in Student Enterprise (StEP). Over 500 of these students participated in the social entrepreneurship component of StEP by running their own school businesses. StEP students earned a total of $3,147,511 StEP dollars. Enrolled 26 local high school juniors and seniors in the Today’s Learners, Tomorrow’s Leaders (TL2) summer program, a rigorous, college-level Microeconomics course. Offered 30 teacher training courses, for grades K-12, reaching over 295 educators and selling 225 graduate credits. Over 100 educators attended the Center’s Financial Education Conference. Mission As a thought leader in the community, the Economics Center provides the knowledge building blocks for a stronger economy through economic education and research. Our student-based programs, interactive tools and professional development improve the economic and financial literacy of school children and young adults. Our research and consulting empowers business and civic leaders to make informed policy and economic development decisions. Our Impact Engaging Students, Empowering Educators, Equipping Decision Makers through the Knowledge of Economics Completed more than 40 research and consulting projects for local and regional clients, totaling over $650,000 in revenues.

  4. 4.

I ntroduced new product capabilities for our clients including compensation analysis and wage benchmarking for specific occupations, and diversity audits for employee demographics. These analyses help clients understand if their workforce characteristics are consistent with the region’s workforce, industry, and customers. Launched a daily blog, ECONversations, where we engage in dialogue about economic topics with members of the community. Our team provides economic perspectives on what is happening in the economy in a way that is easy to understand.

Schroth Family Charitable Trust, PNC Bank, Trustee A special thank you for the generous contribution to the Economics Center. In December 2012, the PNC Bank awarded the Economics Center with a $15,000 grant from The John A. Schroth Family Charitable Trust for the development and implementation of our Money Savvy Kids Program. Money Savvy Kids trains elementary educators on how to implement the Council for Economic Education’s Financial Fitness for Life curriculum in their classrooms. Educators then deliver this curriculum to their students. In its inaugural year, 52 teachers participated in the program and in turn, 1,000 young students were equipped with the important foundations of economic and financial education. Money Savvy Kids is modeled after $mart Tennessee, which is an initiative Dr. Julie Heath, the Economics Center Executive Director, founded while at the University of Memphis. The Economics Center is currently pursuing funding to ensure another 50 educators can be recruited in the program next year.

Will you help us reach the next 1,000,000? After three and a half decades of work, the Economics Center has trained thousands of teachers, developed countless classroom materials and teaching resources, and impacted one million students through innovative school programs that foster and support knowledge of the economy, entrepreneurship, and personal financial literacy.

Our work allows teachers to effectively equip their students with the skills they will need for life.
