West Virginia University’s Center for Financial Literacy and Education, housed in the John Chambers College of Business and Economics, has partnered with PRA Group, Inc., a global leader in acquiring and collecting nonperforming loans, to advance financial literacy efforts as part of WVU’s land-grant mission.
PRA Group’s generous $210,000 contribution will fund two seminars on financial literacy in civics, business, and math led by the Chambers College and WVU Extension Service to maximize impact across the state. The first seminars in October 2020 include community leaders representing all 55 West Virginia counties. The second seminar will begin in February 2021 and will focus on primary and secondary educators. Both seminars are expected to positively impact more than 3,500 West Virginia students. PRA Group, Inc. will also support financial lunch and learns across the state for high school seniors preparing to go to college, college students, and adult learners.
