interaction of students, faculty and staff in higher education makes
for a variety of enriching and dynamic opportunities. An investment in
education is a very good bet as long as students complete their program
to achieve the credential they set out to earn. Assistance is available
to help educators help students as well as direct student services.
Here are a couple of examples of on-campus resources for educators and students.
UW-La Crosse’s It Makes$ Cents is a program to
motivate, inspire a call to action, and to instill the knowledge to sow
the success that each student strives to reap after graduation.
UW-Madison’s Financial Life Skills
program is two one-credit classes offered to undergraduate students to
provide the knowledge and tools needed to successfully manage personal
finances during and after college.
