Developing Financial Literacy Practices at an HSI: A Holistic Approach
Presented by Kristan Venegas and Melisa Moss, University of La Verne
The goal of this session is to share the design and early results of a holistic financial literacy approach at a Hispanic Serving Institution. Our approach combines 1) financial literacy, 2) financial aid awareness, 3) career development and 4) holistic well being as part of a co-curricular university wide initiative that begins during summer bridge and summer parent programming and continue through to graduation. The session will feature the overall design, as well as the early data from our summer bridge and parent academy components. The session will be highly interactive as include a take-away tool for assist other colleges and universities in considering their own university-wide holistic financial literacy implementation.
