Founded in fall 2020, the Center for Financial Literacy aims to provide objective, high-quality resources to assist individuals in making personal financial decisions. Through programming and outreach, we help students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members build their understanding of financial skills. We also support students interested in exploring wealth management and financial planning careers.
Our main activities include:
- Highlighting opportunities and resources in the financial planning and wealth management fields through career events, guest speakers and networking events
- Facilitating personal finance workshops on topics such as budgeting, strategies for eliminating debt and preparing for retirement
- Conducting financial literacy lessons to elementary schools in Alamance County through a partnership with Junior Achievement
The Center is housed on the first floor of Richard W. Sankey Hall, room 116.
