Simon Center: Programs & Events
Research is only part of the equation. Education is the other half. Through dynamic events, the Simon Center educates the public about their research findings, what they mean, and how they can help provide solutions for a stronger economic future.
As part of its mission, the Simon Center hosts annual speaker symposiums that bring together local, regional, and national officials to discuss topics related to the economic condition of the St. Louis area and the Midwest, the United States, and the world.
