2009 IHEP Symposium on Financial Literacy and College Success at Minority-Serving Institutions: Increased Retention in the Midst of Economic Uncertainty
The goal of 2009 Symposium on Financial Literacy and College Success at Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) was to help equip institutions to better meet both student and institutional financial needs with careful consideration given to issues of accessibility, affordability, retention, and financial aid.
Partnering with USA Funds®, the nation’s largest guarantor of student loans, to bring together representatives from Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutions, and Tribal Colleges and Universities, this IHEP convening encouraged participants to think critically about how institutional practices relate to broader institutional goals, specifically, financial literacy and student retention and promoted engaging discourse and concrete ideas that build upon institutional change effort already in progress on campuses. Participants included a range of senior-level leaders such as college and university presidents, chief student affairs personnel, and financial aid representatives.
