St. Kate's Money Management Program is an innovative and unique campus offering. We were one of the first higher education institutions to provide this resource, which we found in 2007 to be necessary as students faced rising education and living costs.
Today the Money Management Program provides financial education and resources to students via presentations, workshops, one-on-one counseling and courses. Our services are brought to campus through the Financial Literacy Office and generous gifts from Synchrony Financial, Wells Fargo and Affinity Plus. The program's "Money Doesn't Grow on Trees" speaker series received the Student Development Award from the Minnesota College Personnel Association in 2008. Most recently, 100% of students who attended our 2013-2014 programming rated the content as "good to excellent."
For students to understand and develop personal financial management skills that contribute to purposeful life-long learning.
To provide comprehensive information and resources designed to teach St. Catherine University students the life skills of personal finance and money management. This program guides students on how to finance their education, establish and manage credit, handle expenses during and after college, graduate with a plan for repaying debt and to consider the call for philanthropy.
