ABS Marketing & Financial Literacy


Auxiliary Business Services (ABS) Marketing and Financial Literacy department supports the marketing, communication, and assessment of ABS' nine units and the Office of Administration & Finance. Our goal is to communicate timely and accurate key messages of the services and programs ABS offers. We accomplish this through assessing students' needs and fostering opportunities for collaboration with internal and external departments and business partners. We're helping Monarchs better manage their financial resources and improve their financial health through Monarch Money Matters financial literacy program. Throughout the semester, MMM organizes a series of events, workshops, and fairs to raise financial literacy awareness while giving students, faculty/staff an exciting approach to mastering their financial growth. The information provided at these events ranges from financial aid assistance, budgeting, investing, savings, identity theft, and much more.
