RIT Student Affairs and Student Government are excited to offer a FREE Financial Wellness Conference on Sunday, February 10th from 1-5:30pm in CIMS (Louise Slaughter Hall - building 78). The goal of this conference is to raise awareness about the importance of financial wellness/financial literacy. Simply put, financial literacy is the ability to understand how money works: how someone makes, manages and invests it. To understand money and how it works, it’s important to understand common financial principles such as budgeting, saving, credit, investments, as well as making sense of job offers, negotiating salary, and protecting your assets. Your level of financial literacy affects your quality of life significantly. It affects your ability to provide for yourself and family, your attitude towards money and investment, as well as your contribution to your community. Financial literacy enables people to understand what is needed to achieve a lifestyle that is financially balanced, sustainable, ethical and responsible.
The conference will kick off with a keynote address from RIT alum ('99) William Prentice II from Prentice Wealth Management and attendees will also be able to select to attend up to three, 50 minute sessions on a variety of financial literacy topics mentioned above. Please be sure to register for both the overall conference and select one session to attend in each of the three 50 min time blocks. This will help the planning team determine interest in the topics and appropriate room scheduling.
This FREE conference has been designed and developed specifically for currently enrolled RIT students, but is also open to RIT faculty, staff and alumni. Space is limited to 240 registrants.
Interpreting services available on request and subject to availability. Please indicate your needs when you complete the registration form.
