The UCLA Department of Economics would like to congratulate Adriana Lleras-Muney for being awarded the Warren C. Scoville Distinguished Teaching Award for best undergraduate teaching in Fall 2019 for her class Econ 130–Public Finance.
This course explores the role of governments in the economy. It analyzes why governments intervene in some markets and not others and the history behind some of our social programs. Discussions center on many of the issues currently facing policy makers including Medicare, public education, and tax policy.
Warren C. Scoville was a faculty member for the UCLA Department of Economics for 28 years before his death in 1969. This award is given quarterly in his name to the ladder faculty member who receives the highest teaching evaluation scores from his or hers course.
