J. Curtis Hall, VCEE founder and first-ever dean of VCU’s School of Business, has passed away at age 91. During his legendary 26-year tenure at the Business School, enrollment grew from 400 to 4,500 students. As visionary founder of VCEE, Hall saw the importance of providing economic education to students in kindergarten through twelfth grade, establishing foundational knowledge in key financial concepts that would serve young people no matter what educational path or vocation they chose.

“Dr. Hall wanted people to know how to be careful consumers, wise savers, savvy investors, productive workers and successful business people,” said Suzanne Gallagher, former Director of the VCU Center for Economic Education.  For more on Hall’s life and enduring legacy, click here.
