Florida A & M University Minorities and Retirement Security Program - FAMU MARS

The Florida A & M University Minorities and Retirement Security Program is a project funded by the Department of Education.

FAMU is uniquely positioned to not only provide focused education to its student, faculty,and staff populations about sound financial decision-making choices, it is also uniquely qualified to promote graduate students' capacity to conduct research and fill the gaps that exist in the literature as articulated above.

FAMU campus is surrounded by minority and low-income communities; thus, FAMU MARS is distinctly situated to design, implement, and evaluate seminars, workshops, curriculum modules, and a train-the-trainer program on Financial Decision-Making, which includes financial literacy and retirement security, that will not only educate, but also influence the financial decision-making behaviors of its students and others in its surrounding communities.
