The Clark Atlanta University financial literacy and college success plan supports the following University Strategic Plan:
While the key factors impacting college persistence and success for undergraduates at Clark Atlanta are located across a number of areas, including academic and social, for many the key factors are linked to finances and financial education. Currently, "TG Financial Literacy Program," a financial literacy component provided annually by the Texas Guaranteed Student Loan Corporation, is included in new student orientation, which consists of eight instructor led modules. Each module is designed to be taught independently and is scalable and can also be taught in increments.
For the 2012 – 2013 year, the main focus is getting the program up and running. We plan to implement a viable and sustainable financial literacy program that will address skills necessary for them to be viable members of society at large.
