Saint Francis University Dedicates New Center for the Study of Occupational Regulation

Saint Francis University in Pennsylvania held a ribbon-cutting ceremony last week to dedicate the new Center for the Study of Occupational Regulation (CSOR), headed by associate professor of economics Ed Timmons.

The keynote address was delivered by Morris Kleiner, a leading expert on the effects of occupational regulation and professor at the University of Minnesota. Kleiner also received the CSOR Scholarship Award for his contributions to the field.

The center was founded in July to provide information to the public about the scale and scope of occupational regulation across the country.
