“Minnesota's international reputation in economics is built on the independent spirit and rigorous thinking that characterized the work of Professors Heller and Hurwicz and other top economics faculty. This level of excellence continues today, making the Heller-Hurwicz Economics Institute a key academic priority for the University of Minnesota. 
‘An investment in the Heller-Hurwicz Economics Institute is an investment in discovering solutions to global economic issues.’

—Former University of Minnesota President Robert Bruininks

Your support of the Heller-Hurwicz Economics Institute will help assemble a powerful team of talented economics faculty and graduate students, and will bring world-renowned economists to Minnesota to engage in, and grapple with, some of the most pressing economic issues of our time. Your investment strengthens the University's vision to nurture areas of exceptional academic performance that will make major contributions to real-world outcomes.

Your unrestricted contribution offers critical support for Heller-Hurwicz Economics Institute's core activities: faculty and graduate student research, symposia, visiting scholars, and the dissemination of powerful new ideas.

Join us today to break new ground in teaching and research, discover frontier tools of economic theory, and use these tools to develop practical solutions to the global challenges our society faces today.
