The Joe Tiao Lecture Series, initiated in 2006, enables the College of Arts and Sciences' economics department to bring two internationally acclaimed economists to campus each year. Each Tiao lecturer presents two lectures at K-State: a public lecture on an economics issue of current interest and a more technical seminar in the department.
