The University of Oregon Financial Wellness Center (FWC) (under the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships) has been innovative and strategic in reaching groups traditionally less likely to receive financial education. Through their efforts, the UO FWC has been able to reach students for whom gaining financial education has the highest stakes by creating safe spaces for learning, investing in relationships, and by building a financial education program centered around inclusion. Join us as we share our journey to create and grow an inclusive campus financial wellness program that acknowledges and honors students' identities and lived experiences.
