Indiana Council for Economic Education logoThe Indiana Council for Economic Education (ICEE) is one of the leading organizations in Indiana promoting economic and financial literacy. The ICEE is located within the Department of Agricultural Economics at Purdue University. The ICEE was established in 1954 and has a national reputation for excellence and leadership in K-12 economic education. Its programs are disseminated through a network of eleven university centers of economic education, the Purdue Center being one of them. Both the ICEE and the university centers are affiliated with the national Council for Economic Education.

ICEE sponsors a wide variety of K-12 economic and financial literacy programs, including the Indiana Stock Market Program, the Economics Challenge, Econ Camp, Kidsecon Posters, the Economics Poster Contest, and the Classroom Mini-Economy. 

Most ICEE programs provide professional development to K-12 teachers. This focus on educators leverages economics and financial education because a trained and enthused teacher has a positive impact on new groups of students year after year.
