The Purdue University Research Center in Economics (PURCE) hosts a number of events each year that highlight our faculty, their research, and the research's ability to help community groups, businesses, and government address economic challenges.

PURCE also hosts visitors to campus for lectures and more intimate conversations; many events are open to the public while some are reserved for students or PURCE partners and supporters.
