SWIC welcomes new economics assistant professor

Southwestern Illinois College announced that new Economics Assistant Professor Dustin Sweet recently joined the college for the Spring 2021 Semester.

Sweet has a passion for economics and his ultimate goal is to help students understand the connection between economics and the real world.

“I believe economics can be applied to everyday, real-life situations,” Sweet said. “I hope to be able to showcase that to my students and that they will leave my classes having a better understanding of why economics is so important.”

He will be teaching ECON 115 Introduction to Economics, ECON 201 Principles of Economics (Macro) and ECON 202 Principles of Economics (Micro).

When Sweet isn’t teaching, he enjoys refereeing youth soccer, running and golfing. He earned his Bachelor of Arts from Eastern Illinois University in Charleston and both his Masters of Arts and Doctor of Economics at the University of Missouri in Columbia. Sweet currently lives in St. Louis.
