Our Mission

TU’s Student Financial Wellness Program empowers students through education and engagement. We ensure that all students understand the investment required to successfully complete their education, while also planning for their future. Our aim is to provide students with the tools and resources to create a strong foundation for financial growth and personal financial success.

Our Financial Wellness Consultants understand the pressures associated with being a college student, and we want to help students navigate such pressures in their lives. Although we are not financial advisors, we assist our students in understanding their financial values and priorities while providing ongoing support. We all have a financial story, but before questions about personal finances become a burdensome chapter, visit with a Financial Consultant. We want to help students change their story.
