The 2010 Symposium on Financial Literacy and College Success at Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) sought to equip institutions to better meet both student and institutional financial needs with careful consideration given to issues of accessibility, affordability, retention, and financial aid.
Partnering with USA Funds®, the nation’s largest guarantor of student loans, to bring together representatives from Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutions, Tribal Colleges and Universities, and Asian American Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions, this IHEP convening focused on linking institutional financial practices to student success strategies by drawing on model programs and practices at select MSIs.
The event promoted engaging discourse and concrete ideas that build upon institutional change effort already in progress on campuses. Several higher education leaders and experts joined as speakers to discuss key issues such as:
- Best practices for mitigating financial constraints
- Increasing student retention
- Leveraging strategic partnerships
- Diversifying funding and revenue sources
- Investing in direct services to support student success
