Higher One, a university financial services organization, has awarded the Financial Literacy Counts Grant to Lee University for fall 2014. The grant will fund the Financial Literacy and Money Empowerment project, sponsored by Lee’s Financial Aid Office.

The project’s goal is to coordinate a campus-wide financial literacy campaign to reach all students. It will provide opportunities for students to engage in educational activities in order to promote critical thinking about financial responsibilities and money fitness.

Activities will include freshman orientation financial matters sessions, online financial counseling, and coffee chats and promotional booths to promote awareness. These will be implemented through a Financial Avenue online course module, the Gateway freshman seminar class, and collaboration with Phi Beta Lambda, a student-led business club.
