About the Program

The McLane Teammates Reading Program was a one semester, non-credit reading group where participants read and discussed selections from classic works and from contemporary scholars that address important questions in political economy. Participants that successfully completed the program received a $1,000 scholarship.

The McLane Teammates Reading Programs at Texas Tech University and Angelo State University complemented similar programs, which operated concurrently at the O'Neil Center for Global Markets and Freedom at Southern Methodist University, the Baugh Center for Entrepreneurship & Free Enterprise at Baylor University, and the Arkansas Center for Research in Economics at the University of Central Arkansas.

All groups examined the same set of readings and interacted with one another at a summit hosted each semester by Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX.

Participants met weekly for discussions facilitated by a Texas Tech University or Angelo State University faculty member, whose role was to pose questions and encourage participation from each member of the group. More details about past programs can be viewed at the links above.

Current Program

The program continues to be facilitated at Texas Tech University and Angelo State University as the Political Economy Reading Program. All undergraduate students, who have a full-time enrollment status at Texas Tech or Angelo State University, are eligible and encouraged to apply.
