Adriana Lleras-Muney, professor of economics at UCLA has won the department’s Fall 2017 Warren C. Scoville Distinguished Teaching Award for her class on public finance.

The popular lab-based public finance course introduces students to the latest issues on a range of public policy topics, ranging from health care to education. The class instructs students in data analysis, improves their analytical skills, hones their writing skills by teaching them how to write policy memos, and engages them in policy debates.

Scoville was on the faculty of the department of economics for 28 years before his death in 1969. He is remembered by this quarterly award.
