UK website focuses on student loans, employment, health care, credit, saving and investing and money management
LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 9, 2014) — The Graduate School at the University of Kentucky has created a personal financial education webpage called “Money Management Matters.”
The website focuses on six areas: Student loans; employment; health care; credit; saving and investing; and money management.
The website offers links and videos to help students learn about each of the six topics.
The UK Graduate School is one of 15 universities, in partnership with the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) and the investment firm TIAA-CREF, to introduce a personal financial literacy initiative aimed at educating students and graduates.
Last fall the 15 university partners distributed surveys to their graduate student populations concerning a variety of personal financial questions, to understand their “baseline” of personal financial knowledge. Using this information, the CGS developed GradSense.org as a personal financial education platform designed to help students and graduates enhance their personal financial knowledge.
