In conjunction with AccessLex Institute's Financial Education Advisory Committee (FEAC), we published these reports which offer proven techniques and helpful best practices for school administrators like you to use to establish a thriving financial education program at your school. The topics in these reports were identified through the Survey of Financial Education Practices at Graduate and Professional Institutions and Programs. This three-part series will equip you with both proven and “hot-off-the-presses” ideas to build and grow your program — and better reach your students.
