COMPASS: Financial Literacy
In response to the growing concern about the financial wellness of students at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science, and the increase in student debt and complex repayment methods, the Office of Student Financial Services started to think about how to expand current financial literacy outreach efforts.
Inspire confidence through financial education geared towards health professions students by using resources that contribute to positive and informed financial decisions leading to a financially well balanced lifestyle.
Prepare students to have the confidence in their financial future and are able to meet their financial goals.
- Transparency: We want to be clear about the complexities of financial wellness and financial aid.
- Intentionality: We want to be intentional with who we partner with, what programs we host, and when we put out the information to the students.
- Integrity: We refuse to present on material we are not 100% confident in, we will bring in third-party presenters to ensure accuracy of information.
- Inclusion: We need to ensure inclusion in everything we do.
