Site Spotlight – Southern Methodist University


Foundation for Teaching Economics is excited to be hosting our Economics for Leaders program – for both high school teachers and students – at Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas, TX.

There is no shortage of things to do in the city of Dallas. A growing national hub, Dallas is filled with several stunning parks, amusement parks and museums.  If aviation is your thing, visit the Frontier of Flight Museum to see the tools behind America’s early space exploration.  Readers and future leaders can spend their time digging through records and artifacts at the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum.

Dallas has also been ranked as one of best big city for jobs and the best city for college students to move. The SMU campus is a large part of that, sitting just north of downtown Dallas in University Park. SMU ranks 13th for best alumni networks in US colleges!  If you want to take a break from the studying and networking, you can join another 32,000 fans when they pack the stands of Gerald J. Ford Stadium to watch one of Mustang’s Division I football games.

The SMU program will run from July 8 – July 14, 2019.
