The University of North Georgia's (UNG) Student Money Management Center is hosting a one day, drive-in conference, centering on the importance of financial literacy. This drive-in is planned to bring together individuals interested in the importance of "Investing in a Culture of Financial Literacy." It will provide an environment for attendees to build their knowledge and reflect on best practices. Led by experts in the field, this conference will benefit you and your students!
"Investing in a Culture of Financial Literacy," emphasizes the need for, and benefits of, raising students' financial understanding in both secondary and post-secondary educational settings. With over 40 million Americans contributing to a current national student loan debt total exceeding $1.2 trillion, our conference could not come at a better time. Financial stress is being cited as the highest factor driving post-secondary dropout rates, and our goal is to create a discussion on how best to combat the issues that come along with the rising costs of higher education at not only UNG but colleges and high schools throughout Georgia.
