News for NMU Employees


NMU was one of 21 colleges and universities selected to receive grants through the Financial Literacy Counts program from Higher One, a financial services and data analytics company. Peter Holliday (Student Support Services) is overseeing the $2,700 allotted to NMU. The funds are being used to deliver basic financial literacy information to a minimum of 250 students this semester. The NMU Economics Student Association also will offer individual planning/consultation meetings and services to interested freshmen as part of the program.

Higher One launched the program to help support critical financial literacy awareness campaigns, workshops, online financial literacy tools and other activities/resources. Its goal is to promote financial capability among college students and provide opportunities to increase students' personal financial management skills and abilities.
