JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – The Jackson State University (JSU) College of Business hosted a grand opening ceremony for its Financial Wellness Center (FWC), making JSU the first HBCU to do so. The Society of Financial Education and Professional Development (SFEPD) and Wells Fargo will partner in the endeavor to ensure the center becomes a substantial resource for students.

We partnered with Wells Fargo to infuse financial literacy into the education of HBCU students, who in turn can use that information as well as the income generated from their degrees to make better decisions for themselves.
