April is Maroon Money Month!

A jar with money inside, with text that says 'To promote National Financial Literacy Month, the SMMC invites you to participate in an exciting month of activities!'

The Student Money Management Center (SMMC) is conducting a variety of engaging and educational activities in April, which has been named Maroon Money Month at TWU, in recognition of National Financial Literacy Month. From in-person games and presentations to virtual information sessions and workshops, the SMMC team is offering something for everyone across all campuses and the online community.

The SMMC, which opened in August 2021, is excited to join in promoting National Financial Literacy Month for just the second time. The center has teamed up with experts from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Sallie Mae, Wells Fargo Mortgage, and local entrepreneurs, along with its campus partners in the Office of Financial Aid, Spend Well, Health & Wellbeing, TWU Libraries, Career Connections Center, Center for Student Development, Center for Women Entrepreneurs, the Graduate School, TWU-Dallas, and TWU-Houston to offer 17 events.

About Financial Literacy Month

Financial Literacy Month, which is celebrated every year in April, was first recognized in the United States in 2004 to raise public awareness of the importance of financial literacy and maintaining smart money management habits. Organizations across the country celebrate achievements in improving financial literacy and conduct events throughout the month.

How can I get involved?

Detailed information about all programming can be found in Pioneer Engage as well as the TWU Calendar of Events. Virtual programs will be conducted on Zoom and require participants to pre-register.
