Understanding and Promoting Student Financial Wellness: A Report from the Financial Wellness Learning Collaborative
Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board
All Texans deserve access to affordable, high-quality learning opportunities that lead to credentials of value--postsecondary credentials that will unlock their potential, help them provide for their families, and pursue their dreams. Helping students understand the financial choices they will make before, during and after their postsecondary education and giving them the tools they need to achieve financial wellness is critical to students' long-term success. This report includes an overview of the financial challenges that today's students face, key takeaways from a 2019 survey about the student financial literacy and wellness programs currently underway in Texas, and practical information that Texas higher education institutions can use to launch or further develop their efforts. In addition, the report highlights the Texas OnCourse initiatives to develop accessible, professional development for higher education advisers on the financial issues and challenges that students face. The future competitiveness of Texas depends on how well the potential of the state's talent is unlocked. Texas colleges and universities are rethinking how they communicate with students about financial aid, investing in financial education and literacy programming for their students, and making critical changes to practices that impact students' finances. This report highlights Texas institutions and their inspiring work. This report can be used to innovate and advance creative solutions that will support the financial well-being of all Texas students.
