In this document the authors provide practitioners offering education Independent Development Accounts (IDAs) with information about whom to partner with in a postsecondary institution. The authors gained this information through interviews, focus groups, and case studies with higher education and IDA practitioners. College campuses can sometimes feel like miniature cities and the authors want to make their partnerships with them as smooth as possible. This paper presents a list of some questions that will be answered through this document: (1) With which postsecondary institution should I partner?; (2) Whom should I contact initially?; (3) Who should be involved in the follow-up conversation?; (4) Where do I house the IDA?; (5) Where can I get match?; (6) Is there a financial institution on campus?; (7) Who can assist with asset-specific training?; and (8) Who already offers financial education? (Contains 7 endnotes.)
