About Us

The UMKC Office of Financial Literacy empowers all students for financial success by providing financial literacy information, resources, and programs to secondary and post-secondary education sectors.

Our Beliefs

  • We believe that young people should be prepared for college and beyond by having an understanding of how the world that surrounds them works.
  • We believe that collegiate financial wellness supports a student’s ability to persist in college and life.
  • We believe that the community plays an important role in the individual lives of all students and nurtures their understanding of personal finance and the economic system in which they live.
