FINANCIAL LITERACY ACTIVITIES
Financial literacy is an important set of money management skills and we have many activities available for our students each semester. The activities consist of on-campus and virtual workshops, money management modules, and campus events.
What We Do:
Spread awareness and implement strategies designed to increase financial literacy of PSC students. We also increase awareness within the PSC community, in order to continuously improve persistence, retention, and graduate rates, as well as improve the financial health of the community at large.
