Financial Literacy

What Our Campus is Doing:

Virtual and Face-to-Face In-Class Presentations:
We are working with First Year Seminar and other classes to acquaint our Jaguars with our curriculum! Ask your instructor if you’re interested.

On-Campus Engagement and Events:
We have a variety of events to share with you from Financial Literacy Week in the Fall to Money Smart Week in the Spring, plus weekly tabling. See JagSync for details.

Additionally, if you would like more financial learning opportunities, check out the Student Financial Education Webinar series from Trellis.

Individual Support
Students can meet with the campus Financial Education Coordinator in the Mays Center to learn about resources available to meet their specific financial goals. Appointments can be made by emailing David Galvan, Financial Education Coordinator.  

Off-Campus:
We regularly partner with Junior Achievement of South Texas to work with neighboring independent school districts so younger students can achieve financial literacy and capability before they reach higher education status!  Through a generous donation from Amerigroup, we also create on- and off-campus programs for our students and the greater San Antonio community.
