The Morgan Le Fay Center For Advances in Economics, Business, and Entrepreneurship Education was established at Landmark College in 2014 through a generous gift from Paul McCulley and the Morgan Le Fay Dreams Foundation. This award supports the development and refinement of pedagogy in the fields of business, economics, and entrepreneurship in connection with the College’s current and future programs in those fields.
Thank you to all those who attended the first annual Morgan Le Fay Symposium on Saturday, October 1.
College Economics Faculty Survey of Best Practices
In Spring 2016, the Morgan Le Fay Center published the results of a nationwide survey of economics faculty, designed to gain a better understanding of current teaching practices for diverse learners.
The History of the Morgan Le Fay Center
A $1 million gift from noted economist Paul McCulley established the Morgan Le Fay Center for Advances in Economics, Business, and Entrepreneurship Education at Landmark College in 2014. The Center supports the development and refinement of a progressive pedagogy for Landmark College students in the fields of economics, business, and entrepreneurship, as well as research, training, and related innovations for educators in the field of learning difficulties (LD).
“This gift catalyzes our efforts to leverage the natural entrepreneurial strengths of our students, who are bright, young people with learning difficulties eager to make an impact in the world of economics, business, and entrepreneurship,” says Dr. Peter Eden, President of the College.
McCulley is a longtime philanthropist and an executive with the Pacific Investment Management Company (PIMCO), and the father of 2014 Landmark College graduate Jonathan McCulley.
“As Jonathan’s father, I have witnessed in real time the transforming power of Landmark College’s unique melding of bespoke pedagogy and community support for those with LD,” McCulley says. “Landmark College is a pillar of evidence-based innovation in instruction for students with LD, in both the classroom and in navigating life’s challenges.”
McCulley’s scholarly research has been quoted widely and was called “magisterial” by Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman.
