Financial Wellness for You

Financial wellness refers to the state of financial well-being.  This includes a strong financial foundation of little or no debt, an emergency savings fund, and living below our means.  Like any other form of wellness, this does not happen without knowledge, skills, commitment and planning. 

Let our financial wellness team help you to reach your financial well-being goals.  Below you will find a series of workshops centered around various aspects of financial well-being.  We encourage you to take advantage of these complimentary workshops for Kent State University employees.
