ATLANTA (April 10, 2013) - Clark Atlanta University (CAU) recognizes April as Financial Literacy Month, set by a 2011 proclamation from President Barack Obama, with a host of interactive activities to help educate CAU students on financial management.  Topics will include saving and investing, shopping and budgeting, and understanding taxes.

CAU President Carlton E. Brown said, “Exploring sound financial principles and best practices is probably more important now than ever before for our students.  Financial decisions they make today can have lifelong consequences tomorrow.  Given an economy that has been slow to rebound from the worst economic crisis in generations, our Financial Literacy Initiative supports our students as they prepare for a more global economy and also the development of skills for invention and entrepreneurship.”

Established at CAU in June of 2012, the Financial Literacy Initiative has as its mission to promote financial literacy among students through classroom presentations and one-on-one peer counseling on financial management, services and products.  Follow CAU’s Financial Literacy Initiative on Facebook.
