S.D. Council on Economic Education

The mission of the South Dakota Council on Economic Education (SDCEE) is to improve the quality and quantity of statewide economic literacy.

We provide teacher training programs, educational material development and effective distribution of resources through a statewide lending library and web page. These activities focus on teaching basic economic concepts to students in kindergarten through 12th grade and to adults through community programs. The SDCEE incorporates economic education, financial responsibility, environment, economic development and enterprise into its programs.

The SDCEE, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is part of the outreach services of The University of South Dakota Beacom School of Business. This relationship, in addition to partnerships and affiliations with statewide, national and international organizations, enables the Council to meet the ever growing needs of the citizens of South Dakota. Working closely with the School of Business, the Council is committed to maintaining and expanding programs which will prepare students, teachers and community members to participate successfully in a global economy. Literacy of this type will help South Dakota grow and keep its population vibrant.
