Center for Student and Engagement and Financial Resources (CSEF)


The Center for Student Engagement and Financial Resources cultivates the personal, cultural, and social development of students by enriching their co-curricular education in the areas of financial literacy, community engagement, and global fluency.

Successful students will:

  • have the ability to use acquired knowledge and skills to effectively manage financial resources for lifelong financial well-being.
  • be responsible and engaged citizens who have sought out opportunities to further personal growth, as well as have contributed to community improvement.
  • have awareness of their own cultural identity and views; the ability to appreciate alternate attitudes, perspectives, and behaviors; and the capacity to motivate and empower others.
