We invite proposals for presentations (including discussions, workshops and other innovative formats) on all aspects of teaching financial literacy to students who are bound for college or who are currently enrolled in college. While presentations on research studies are welcome, the main focus is on practical, useful information and best practices that attendees can use in their own jobs helping students. Sessions will be 45 minutes long, a minimum of 15 minutes of which should be devoted to audience questions and discussion.

Please submit a 200-word summary of your proposed session plus a brief biography of each presenter to finlitconference@gmail.com no later than Monday, August 5, 2013.

This conference offers a rare opportunity for high school and college staff to meet together to explore issues related to students’ personal finance skills and their college success. The conference will be of particular interest to:
o high school principals, guidance counselors, and teachers
o college admissions, financial aid, academic advising, first year experience, retention, and student success staff
o anyone who cares about the practical aspects of helping students make good choices about where to attend college, how to manage money while in college, and how to pay off student debt after college
