M.H. Russell Center for Economic Education

This center is dedicated In honor of Dr. M. H. Russell in part because he provided outstanding leadership as the second president of the Arkansas State Council on Economic Education during the years 1964-65-66. It was his belief that colleges should be the fountainhead for information on economic education, which led to the establishment of this center, the first one in Arkansas, on February 1, 1968.

The Center serves 12 counties in west central Arkansas.

"Henderson State University is honored to be the home of the first center for economic education in Arkansas. Established in 1968, the M.H. Russell Center is a vital part of Economics Arkansas' history of providing programs that empower educators to teach the economic way of thinking. By encouraging students to invest in their human capital, these programs inspire students to consider higher education as pathway to progress. We celebrate our past partnership and anticipate continued collaboration toward a shared focus of responding to the needs of the communities we serve in order to preserve and improve the quality of life in Arkansas."
