Impact is clear in the lessons and passion our students draw from the forum

The Beloit Economics Department offers an opportunity not only to study a noted scholar but to question them and ask their advice about everything from grad school to senior theses.

2018 marked the 11th iteration of the massively successful Miller Upton Forum at Beloit, and after a decade of the program, it continues to be one of the most impactful, phenomenal experiences a student can have while studying Economics at Beloit College.

We were given a platform to openly discuss issues surrounding the world energy problem with economists and thinkers of the highest stature. As students, we were able to challenge, propose and rebuild ideas with the curiosity and spark that runs among youngsters.

I went to Beloit College because I believed that Beloit would supply me with the hands-on, applicable experiences that I know are the best way for me to learn, and the Miller Upton Forum did exactly that.

The Senior Seminar and Upton Forum provided students opportunities to perceive different opinions on the same cases and events, and to learn to think critically.


Catherine Krol ’16

I think one of the most important benefits to the program is the ability to see Liberal Arts in Practice and witness the way scholars capitalize on their expertise to contribute to the growing field of Economics.

My participation in the program reinforced my passion in development economics. The insights I gained are informing me well in my current work and graduate studies in international development. Thank you Beloit Economics Department for this wonderful experience!
