  • Student Financial Knowledge: Initial Results From A Multi-Institutional Study.

If knowledge is power, then personal finance knowledge can empower student learning. This session will present preliminary results from the 2017 National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) administration that explores patterns in student financial knowledge, awareness of institutional financial education resources, and financial stress. The presenters will use the results to demonstrate connections between financial education and knowledge, and student engagement and success for undergraduates pursuing bachelor’s degrees.
