Following up on its 2018 SEEK program with Queens College of the City University of New York, which provided financial aid as well as supplemental academic support, TIAA has launched a nifty online and on-campus financial education program called FinSights. The online program aims to help college students (or others who want to watch) skills to attain financial literacy.
“Far too many Americans, including college students, lack the financial knowledge they need to thrive,” said TIAA President and CEO Roger W. Ferguson Jr., in a statement. “This program helps ensure that college students have the tools and resources to help them manage their financial lives and improve their financial future.”
The online program delves into several aspects of finances, providing three- to five-minute videos (learning modules), combined with quizzes and pop-up explanations to educate all levels of people in financial matters. Two access points allow the user to answer personal questions on financial goals to design a customized play list, or they can proceed to the general list of modules.
