    16. HU students’ financial literacy performance statistically no different than NJS’ room for improvement HU FLS=63.1% a minimum, 70% FLS. Are the evaluated students financial aware. If so, what are the key factors that influence their awareness? If not, what areas are they deficient?

    17. Are the current financial literacy educational paradigms effective? • Review revealed: • Courses are effective in increasing total financial knowledge. • Greatest impact on FLS experimental, then formal learning • Continue with the seminars on Money Management/Investments and the Personal Finance and Personal Money Management courses. • Seminars and courses are under utilized/too infrequently • Need marketing strategy to increase enrollment

    18. Warren Buffet once said, “Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.” Financial Literacy: Bridge to a Greener Tomorrow. Not only does the “greener tomorrow” imply more savings, investments, and greenbacks for our nation’s students but also that we’re saving more trees for a greener tomorrow, too.
