This study applies the methodology of a recent study that ranks economics departments at national universities in the U.S. South to economics faculties at regional universities in the same geographic location. Ranking results from a â€œcoreâ€ (i.e., the top five faculty researchers) of each institution's economics faculty reveals that Appalachian State University, James Madison University, Southeastern Louisiana University, Trinity University and Loyola University â€“ New Orleans currently maintain the top five economics faculties, respectively, among the approximately 200 regional universities in the U.S. South.
