The Federal Reserve in the 21st Century:
A Symposium for College Professors

The Federal Reserve in the 21st Century Symposium gives college professors a chance to hear presentations from economists and senior staff of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, ask them questions and participate in networking opportunities.

New for 2017, the program will include presentations from the New York Fed's Markets Group on open market operations and the role of primary dealers.

On Monday, March 27, college professors will learn about the theoretical framework of monetary policy and financial stability policy. These sessions will assist undergraduate professors in helping students comprehend the fundamentals of monetary policy effects on the macroeconomy.

On Tuesday, March 28, college professors will engage in a discussion of monetary policy developments, including models for forecasting capital assessment under stress scenarios and policy implementation with a large central bank balance sheet. These sessions will allow graduate and undergraduate professors to build on the students' prior knowledge of the macroeconomy.

There is no fee to attend. Space is limited. Professors may register for only one of the two days, and only two professors may register from the same college or university.
