Ph.D student wins 2nd place at University's Quality Fair
Julie Selander, Ph.D. student in higher education in the Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development, was awarded 2nd place at the 2010 University of Minnesota Quality Fair for a poster presentation entitled "Live Like A Student Now, So You Don't Have To Later"--an outreach campaign by One Stop Student Services with the goal of raising awareness of the financial realities of campus life and to remind students that smart money decisions during college will benefit them for years to come.
This lively, straight-talking campaign is kicked off during Welcome Week with an interactive game show. Financial literacy messaging is continued throughout the year using the Live Like a Student website, a student listserv, digital signs, portal advertisements, presentations, posters and events. The Quality Fair is a university-wide, annual event for all University of Minnesota employees to network and share best practices that will positively impact service and productivity, reduce costs, and enhance revenue, education and research.
