The Office for the Advancement of Free Enterprise Education offers a series of college-style seminars to Wisconsin heroes (veterans, police) and opinion leaders (teachers, nonprofit & clergy leaders, elected officials & policy makers, journalists).

We also offer an annual conference for teachers to assist them in learning more about, and effectively teaching, the history of the American economy.


The OAFEE is hosted by Lakeland University, allowing us to serve Wisconsin in improving the understanding of our economy and financial system, and how to participate more effectively in both. Our office is located at Lakeland University's Milwaukee Center, providing excellent educational amenities in close proximity to downtown. Learn more about LU here!

All seminar sessions are taught by talented university faculty members in a comfortable and interactive format. Dynamic instruction is intermixed with live examples and varied media to help reinforce the material in a way that is easy for all participants to understand. We make learning economics fun!

In all of our programs, we give strong emphasis to understanding and applying the economic way of thinking.


You don’t have to be an expert in [economics], but having the ability to think the way these experts do will help you tremendously.

- Bill Gates (2017) on the Economic Way of Thinking
