logo for Richmond Fed on Campus

The Richmond Fed on Campus program brings experts from the Richmond Fed into college economics classes throughout the Fifth District to share their knowledge about the Fed, the economy, and the benefits of studying economics. We’ll also share internship and early career opportunities at the Richmond Fed.

Audience: College economics classes

Program length: 60 minutes

Topics covered: The economy, the Federal Reserve, Economics, Internships and Careers

Learning Objectives:

Students will:

  • Understand the role the Federal Reserve plays in the economy
  • Interpret the meaning of changes in important economic data such as indicators of inflation, employment and economic growth
  • Have a better understanding of the career paths that an economics major provides, including at the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond
  • Connect the tools of economics to the range of issues that economists study

Program Requirements

We will consider requests for a Richmond Fed on Campus program for economics classes or student groups of 25 or more from community colleges, colleges and universities in the Fifth District (the District of Columbia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and most of West Virginia). It is helpful when visiting campuses for classes to be combined, giving more students the opportunity to attend.

We recommend that requests be submitted at least 30 days in advance. We will accommodate subject to the availability of staff and other considerations. Presentations can be delivered in person or virtually. There is no cost associated with this program.
