Financial topics such as identity theft and budgeting will be covered in a Financial Literacy Seminar set for Tuesday, Sept. 19, at the Nebraskan Student Union Ponderosa Room on the University of Nebraska at Kearney campus.
“The purpose of the seminar is to inform students, and university staff and faculty about the UNK-Well Fargo Card and its use, as well as providing information about financial literacy, which includes identity theft, budgeting basics and the earning power of a dollar,” said Dr. Bruce Forster, dean of the College of Business and Technology.
The seminar, which is free and open to the public, will be offered twice, at 7 and 8:30 p.m. respectively.
After introductory remarks by Dr. Timothy Burkink, associate dean of the UNK College of Business & Technology, a video that explains the intricacies of the Wells Fargo-UNK Debit ID cards will be shown.
After the informational video will be a presentation by Jill Purdy, UNK assistant finance director. Purdy will speak about the features of the UNK ID cards, and how students can optimize their use of the cards.
The second presentation of the Financial Literacy Seminar will be provided by Laura Schultz of Wells Fargo Bank. She will be presenting “Hands-On Banking.”
Rounding out the evening will be a question-and-answer session, where personal bankers from Well Fargo will take questions from attendees.
Those who attend the Financial Literacy Seminar will have an opportunity to win door prizes, courtesy of Wells Fargo, and $20 Loper-dollar certificates.
