The inclusion of students into our conference offerings will contribute to the community engagement and continue to expand the financial wellness conversation further across the country. The HEFW Student Experience will be largely focused around a full-day, pre-conference workshop where students can interact with one another to:--Learn from speakers for training/development purposes--Learn from each other about the financial wellness practices across different campuses--Strengthen financial wellness peer programs in early development--Share ideas on how to build/improve more established programs and develop best practices.
