It all starts in the region...

The Center for the Regional Economy (CRE) brings together faculty, students and alumni at Saint Mary’s College with business, governmental  and non-profit groups in the San  Francisco East Bay, the Greater San Francisco Bay Area and the Asia-Pacific Region in support of an economy that is economically, socially and environmentally sustainable.

  • It carries out research, both academic and applied, on the issues and problems related to its mission, and provides access to research results as broadly as possible.
  • It provides consultancy and advisory services to its constituents leveraging the expertise of Saint Mary’s faculty and students.
  • It organizes events that bring together internal and external constituencies for shared discussion of topics of joint interest.
