Mark R. Shenkman Trading Center
The Mark R. Shenkman Trading Center, donated by Mark R. Shenkman '61, offers students the opportunity to use a state-of-the-art facility to engage in an active research and trading experience in order to gain understanding of the global financial environment.
In addition, the real-time applications of the center give more opportunities for students to see the interconnectedness of their actions to others and how decisions made by them and by global institutions can have profound effects on local and international populations.
"The creation of this new facility, which is as contemporary as you can find in anyplace in the U.S., is also harkening back to the traditions of the Academy and of Wesleyan University as it connects individual development and the public sphere."
~Wesleyan University President, Michael Roth
