From the basics of how to budget, save and manage income, to how to fund an education and plan for retirement, financial literacy is something we all need to develop. Whether you are looking to brush up on your own knowledge, or help your students get started on the right path, UT offers several financial literacy resources for students, alumni, faculty and staff. UT offers FIN 250: Personal Finance. This course is intended to help students understand and apply basic principles of good financial management in their personal financial decisions. Topics include personal budgeting, tax planning, managing cash and credit, making sound insurance decisions, investments and retirement planning. This course, which is not counted as a finance elective for the minor or the major, is two credits and has a pre-requisite of MAT 160 or higher.
Each semester, you can attend the Financial Literacy Speaker Series, hosted by the Baccalaureate Experience Office. Though originally designed for BAC/HON 102, 103 and 104 courses, the office has opened up these presentations to all students as well as faculty and staff members. This is a chance to expand your knowledge in a variety of financial literacy topics — keep an eye out for a global email with the full schedule. All presentations will take place in Reeves Theater in the Vaughn Center. For more information or to get involved with this initiative, contact Jenna Polizzi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
