IHEP partnered with USA Funds® to support its annual Symposium on Financial Literacy and College Success at Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs). The symposia helped equip institutions to better meet both student and institutional financial needs with careful consideration given to issues of accessibility, affordability, retention, and financial aid.
IHEP worked with USA Funds® to bring together representatives from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs), Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), and Asian American Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions (AANAPISIs) to think critically about their institutional practices and how these practices relate to broader institutional goals; specifically, financial literacy and student retention. Participants included a range of senior-level leaders such as college and university presidents, chief student affairs personnel, and financial aid representatives.
The symposia included participants from two- and four-year MSIs from across the country.
