Center for Economic Education

Our Mission

The Center for Economic Education at Dordt College seeks to reach out to public and private schools to globally advance God's kingdom by improving the economic and personal financial literacy of all students. We strive to present a biblically wise, skillful, responsible, and caring way to apply economic, personal finance, and marketplace education in their communal life in God's world.

Our Values

We believe students should develop economic ways of thinking and problem solving that they can use throughout their lives. These tools can be used as consumers, savers and investors, members of the workforce, responsible citizens, and effective participants in a global economy.

Our Vision

We seek to be the leading economic and financial literacy resource for K-12 schools, teachers, and students in Iowa who want to integrate economics, personal finance, and marketplace topics into their curricula.

Our Motive

The Council for Economic Education has just released its 2016 Survey of the States: Economic and Personal Finance Education in Our Nation's Schools. See where your state stands on K-12 economics and personal finance education. Try out an interactive companion at
