‘Build Your Financial Know-How’ Wellness Workshops Offered to Faculty and Staff in September

A dynamic series of financial wellness workshops for faculty and staff will be held on campus for the first time this September. Offered in partnership with Carebridge, the University’s faculty and staff assistance program, the series provides a practical approach to enhancing your financial aptitude while focusing on actions you can take to protect your finances. Attend one workshop or all three!

Coping with financial challenges can increase personal stress, and if not managed correctly, result in costly mistakes. Becoming more conscious about your financial wellness starts with building your financial know-how. No matter what chapter of your life you are in, you can always begin, change or improve your financial story.

The workshops will cover the following topics:

  • Monday, Sept. 13: Managing Your Personal Finances
  • Tuesday, Sept. 14: Gaining Control of Debt
  • Wednesday, Sept 15: Developing a Savings Strategy

Each workshop will be offered at three different times on the same day, 9 a.m., noon and 2 p.m, so you can attend at a time that is convenient for your schedule. The 9 a.m. workshops will be held at the Goldstein Student Center, room 201 ABC. The noon and 2 p.m. workshops will be held at the Schine Student Center, room 304 ABC.
