This guide was prepared by Jim Bondra, Business Librarian with input by Cathy Michael, Communications Librarian, in support of Financial Literacy awareness on our campus. We are highlighting the Personal Finance Lunch & Learn series offered by Prof. Steven Novakovic (Spring 2021). "The IC community is invited to join us this semester as we host a series of monthly webinars on a variety of personal finance topics, including Taxes, Housing, Budgeting, and Personal Finance Tips and Tricks. Each session will be during the noon hour on the following dates: 2/16, 3/18, 4/6, and 5/6." The guide will also be shared with our community as part of Money Smart Week.
