ICLE Academic Affiliate Richard Langlois was profiled in a Q&A post from UConn Today about his recent selection as head of University of Connecticut’s economics department. You can read full piece here.

We are a collegial, friendly department where people look out for each other, and I’m very grateful for that. From that starting point I want to build up our resources to better serve our undergraduates, since we have one of the most popular majors at UConn. Competition is intense for very good faculty, but we have a strong program, and we are hoping to add faculty to improve the student experience and to raise our research profile.
