Seminars in Financial Planning and Retirement Planning

The Center partners with organizations across the state to bring financial literacy to WVU students, faculty and staff and the WV community at large. We offer seminars, training materials, lunch and learn sessions all based around topics and issues related to financial planning. Each presentation is tailored to meet the specific needs of the audience, and often focus on the target areas of budgeting, basic investments skills, and debt management.

Finance University

Finance University was developed eighteen years ago to provide beginning and advanced professional development credentialing for primary and secondary educators in all 55 counties in West Virginia. The program has evolved and grown into an annual event that creates opportunities for, not only professional development credits, but also for educators to learn about personal finance on a personal level while gaining tools to develop curriculum to bring back to their classrooms. Educators   are provided with access to free resources and training, and also have opportunities to interact with faculty at WVU, speakers from the CFLE’s industrial partnerships, government leaders, as well as other educators from across the state.
