Unconquered by Debt

Unconquered by Debt is a series of workshops developed to promote financial wellness. The goals of the program are to enhance financial literacy and transform decision making so that students become wealth creators. The program will promote balanced financial choices so that students fully understand they are responsible for their current and future lifestyles. The focus is on key life choices: career options, earning, spending, saving, investing, managing credit, evaluating risk, insuring assets, and planning for retirement. The Center seeks to build relationships around campus to promote and implement the program.  More information about the program can be found here.

Sign up for any or all of this series of free workshops here. All workshops will be held at the Stavros Center for Economic Education, 250 S. Woodward Ave. (next to the UPS Store). Food and drinks will be provided at every event.
