The Sokolov-Miller Family Financial and Life Skills Center helps students gain the knowledge and skills needed to manage their financial resources effectively for a lifetime of financial wellbeing. Through workshops, webinars, online self-study modules, and one-on-one meetings with staff and student ambassadors, students can learn the principles of financial literacy and receive help tailored to their specific financial challenges.
While one-on-one services are available only to students, group presentation services are also available to Penn State faculty, staff, and alumni.
Key responsibilities of this office include:
- develop and lead financial literacy education workshops, webinars, and online modules throughout the year on a wide range of issues including budgeting, credit cards, student loans, and more
- meet confidentially with students to address their money management concerns
- partner with departments throughout the University to create programs that help students develop long-term strategies for financial stability and offer support for those experiencing financial hardships
