This fall, the Dykhouse Program Speakers Series welcomes Federal Reserve Board Governor Michelle Bowman, who will visit SDSU on October 13th to speak on making monetary policy and the outlook for the U.S economy. Governor Bowman is one of six sitting members of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors.

As the nation’s central bank, the Federal Reserve System is charged by Congress with a dual mandate to promote maximum employment and stable prices in the U.S. economy. The system’s Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) achieves this mandate by influencing interest rates and financial conditions more generally. As a member of the Board of Governors and the FOMC, Governor Michelle Bowman plays an integral role in shaping U.S. monetary policy, which remains historically loose in the wake of the pandemic and the economic disruptions it has imposed on us all. On the evening of October 13th, Governor Bowman will share her perspective on the paths of U.S. monetary policy and economic performance going forward.

The event will be held at 7 pm in the Larson Memorial Concert Hall of our Performing Arts Center. The event is free, and no registration is necessary.
