ED Talk December 8: “Why is Financial Literacy important for student success?”

submitted by reederm@augsburg.edu

Financial literacy matters! Marc McIntosh, Associate Professor of Business Administration, will discuss the relationship between financial literacy and student success. Many students make financial decisions with little understanding of their implications. A basic understanding of finance will help students, and the faculty and staff advising them, to avoid potentially harmful life-altering decisions

CTL will offer ED Talks (based on the concept of TED Talks) before each faculty meeting from 3:10-3:30pm over Zoom (link provided below; Augsburg login required). This year’s theme is “The Future of the Professoriate at Augsburg”, and 2021-2022 Ed talks will be framed under this broad theme that speaks to our “new normal” and beyond.
