In 2011 the Office of the Bursar saw a growing need for financial literacy education. To respond to that need, a Student Peer Educator was hired to bring financial literacy to various student organizations and residence halls. Since then, much work has been done, many events and presentations given and this very site and informative blog: https://medium.com/@MUMoneyMatters created, but more work is to be done. In late 2014, a new financial literacy student committee was formed and they started work on exciting projects, including a budgeting phone app and a Financial Literacy Trivia game. If you’re a Marquette student and have any programming ideas, comments or would like to request a presentation, please e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
