Committees

Events

The Events committee handles the all-campus events and social events of SEA. The main event is SIEPR Policy Forum, held in the fall and spring. In the past, the SIEPR Policy forum featured Nobel Laureates, White House Staff, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs and politicians to come speak and debate on a given issue. This committee will also come up with social events to build community within SEA.

Faculty lunches + Outreach

The Outreach committee manages the club’s speaker series, which features MBAs, company representatives, PhD candidates, and alumni. The committee also invites Econ faculty members to a bi-monthly lunch where a limited number of students can take part in, and get to know the faculty better in a casual setting.

Pre-collegiate Economics Competition

This year, SEA would like to organize and host the first-ever economics competition for high schools in the Bay Area to participate in. We are planning to have the competition be a one-day event sometime in Spring quarter, ideally before AP exam season so the participants can practice Econ skills and reasoning and enjoy working in teams on Econ questions. We are partnering with the Economics department to launch this initiative for the first time.

Undergraduate Economics Journal – Comparative Advantage

The Undergraduate Economics Journal committee is in charge of writing, editing and publishing the quarterly journal. The journal includes articles and essays written by the Stanford undergraduate population. Topics are economics themed but can be on any aspect of economics, from fundamental economic theory to the economics of a startup.

Marketing & Tech

The Marketing and Tech committee is responsible for managing all social media outlets as well as updating the SEA websites with new content. Committee members also work to market/publicize events that SEA puts on over the course of the year and design new logos and club goods (apparel, sunglasses, stickers, etc).

Advising

Stanford Economics Association is working in conjunction with the Department of Economics to organize a peer advising program for undergraduate students. We are recruiting juniors and seniors majoring in economics who are willing to hold bi-monthly office hours to advise new and prospective economics students.
