History of the Student Money Management Center

The Student Money Management Center was founded in 2007 where it started with one full-time employee that saw a handful of students a year for consultations on personal finance. It has since grown to three full-time employees and over 10 student employees that help make the center a success. Today, about 1,300 students use the center’s resources each year!

While the center started with only personal consultations, it has grown over time to offer a wide variety of resources. The center now offers workshops throughout the academic year and presentations to various classrooms, dorms, and student organizations on campus! The SMMC believes that all Bearkats should have the financial literacy skills to be successful during their collegiate years and beyond so we will continue to offer quality consistent programming to bring that vision to Sam Houston State University.
