Center for the Regional Economy

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.
