Iowa Credit Union Foundation partners with UNI to bring financial literacy to high schools

The Iowa Credit Union Foundation has pledged $50,000 to UNI in order to help train educators to teach financial literacy courses in Iowa high schools during the summer of 2020. The program allows educators to receive graduate credit while learning how to better teach students about the importance of personal finance. Approximately 200-400 teachers will participate in the training over the next five years and will positively impact the 30,000 students that graduate from Iowa high schools each year by helping them understand student loans, debt and savings.
