Faculty and Student Research

ISPE supports student and faculty research that applies the Hayek/Buchanan/Ostrom approach to current problems and issues. The Menard Summer Research Fellows program supports rigorous, creative, and original undergraduate research in applied economics. Ball State faculty research is supported by providing the collaborative environment, intellectual activities, and material resources necessary to create, publish, and disseminate high-quality work in the political economy to scholars and the general public.
