Today’s college students – the oldest members of Gen Z – are struggling. Americans owe $1.5 trillion in student loans, with the average new grad owing $28,400. And 81% of students feel they don’t have the information they need to repay their college loans. That’s why financial education is critical in guaranteeing that students succeed in life during and after college.
Join us as we take a deep dive into the market need for financial education on college campuses and describe why we believe that bringing together financial institutions and higher education institutions is the solution.
EVERFI reviews the findings from our most recent report, which explores the financial capability of this age group through a survey of over 30,000 college students across the country. Our guest speaker Eva Fernández, Associate Provost for Innovation and Student Success at Queens College, then gives an example of our solution in action as she details how she’s worked with EVERFI to deliver digital financial education to the students that need it.
