Monday, 26 February, 4.30 – 5.15 p.m.
ZSR Library Auditorium, Room 404.
Presented by the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Colloquium.

Dr. Megan Regan is Assistant Professor and Chair of the Economics Program at Salem College and is also teaching Econometrics for us this semester.
Dr. Regan earned her Ph.D., M.Ed. and B.S.B.A. at the University of Florida. From the rural fields of Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua to the south side of Highway 52 in Forsyth County, the heart of Regan’s research is on improving local communities in their allocation of resources and pro-market reforms. In Forsyth County, she has been researching aspects of inefficient income allocations since 2013. Regan’s research has two synchronized goals, to advance the field of economics concurrent with improving the local community. She is a member of the Southern Economics Association, the Union of Radical Political Economists, and the Women’s Fund. She is on the Board of Directors for LEAD Girls NC and a member of the Mayor’s Council on Urban Food Policy.
Free and open to the public. A reception will follow the talk.
