ASM INTRODUCES FINANCIAL LITERACY EDUCATION CAMPAIGN

November 9, 2012

The Associated Students of Madison’s University Affairs Committee introduced the Financial Literacy Campaign, in an effort to educate students on being more financially literate. A central goal of this project is to host a Town Hall Meeting bringing representatives from student groups, the University and businesses together that work in financial education. As well, the campaign seeks to expand Tax Assistance available to students, through the VITA program that served around 100 students last year.

Mary Prunty, the ASM Intern working on the Financial Literacy Campaign stated: “A major component of this campaign is to increase the tax help available to students. There are literally thousands of students at this university who need these services and we need to reach out to them”. Becca Buell, the University Affairs Chair said, “We feel that students should have the tools and skills to become financially literate; it is our hope to collaborate with other groups on campus with a similar goal.”

Details about the Town Hall meeting will be released as they are solidified. The next University Affairs meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 7th in room 3161 on the 3rd floor of the Student Activities Center. Please direct all further questions to Jesse Pollans at 847-542-9892.
