Our Mission

Our mission as a University Center for Economic Development and Trade is to serve the people of Delaware by improving their understanding of the state’s economy while supporting Delaware’s efforts to make the First State the First Choice of the global business economy.

The University Economic Development and International Trade Center will develop, and ultimately highlight on First State updates, economic development, models and projects, workforce analysis and development initiatives, small business development programs and international trade initiatives for small to mid-sized enterprises.

The Delaware State University Economic Trade and Development Center will leverage the expertise available at the University to equip the public and decision makers with timely information and reliable analyses necessary for efficient and thoughtful discussions surrounding public policy analysis.
