FINANCIAL WELLNESS

The Financial Wellness Commission strives to improve the financial wellness of our undergraduate student body and address financial needs from a proactive/preventative and reactive perspective. For many college students, financial wellness and literacy are topics not often taught to them in any setting. Recognizing the systemic and structural barriers to financial wellness and literacy, the Financial Wellness Commission believes every student deserves equitable access to financial literacy education. In working with the UCI Basic Needs Center and other campus partners, they aim to promote financial wellbeing and bridge the financial literacy gap by making financial support resources more accessible.

The Financial Wellness Commission will also be responsible for advising the President on campus matters related to financial aid and regularly interfacing with the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships. Additionally, alongside the Food Security and Housing Security Commissions, the Financial Wellness Commission will be the primary ASUCI liaison to the Basic Needs Center.
