The College's Alumni Association and School of Business and Technology are hosting a retirement lecture for Barrett at 5 p.m. April 13 in the Mitchell Auditorium on campus. The lecture, "Lessons Learned," will be followed by a reception.
Economics professor Barrett is frequently quoted by media across the region as an expert source on everything from the steel industry to cryptocurrencies.

During that time, he established a Nordic ski team and was instrumental in bringing football to the College.
