Welcome to the Hastert Center Website
The Hastert Center helps students and professionals understand the interaction between economics and public life; from the politics and international relations field, to business organizations and corporations, to the community involvement of missionaries and ministers throughout the world. The teaching, research, and public activities of the Center seek to address important policy issues that Speaker Hastert has made significant contributions to in his public life.
The Center seeks to expand curricular offerings, enhance student learning outcomes, organize conferences and seminars for managers, public officials, and ministry executives, and initiate colloquia, workshops, and leaders in residence programs. To accomplish these objectives, the Center provides financial and administrative support for hosting guest lecturers, curriculum development, work on scholarly and policy relevant research, conferences, public lectures, student seminars, travel-learning experiences and internships.
Thank you for visiting our website. I hope that it will encourage you to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the Center and contribute to greater understanding of the nexus of economics, politics and public policy.
