Post-graduation can be a tumultuous time for students — especially for those facing educational loan debt.

The University of Toledo has partnered with American Student Assistance to provide a new product called SALT, which is a comprehensive financial education program that helps students and alumni build financial skills for life.

Several engagement meetings are planned to introduce the SALT initiative and to gather ideas and engagement strategies that will work best for UT students and alumni.

Sessions will be held Thursday, March 31, at:

• 8:30 a.m. in Rocket Hall Room 1530;

• 10 a.m. in Student Union Room 3018;

• Noon in Collier Building Room 1050; and

• 2:30 p.m. in Student Union Room 3018.

And on Friday, April 1, a session will take place at 8:30 a.m. in Rocket Hall Room 1558.

The meetings, facilitated by an American Student Assistance engagement consultant, will provide UT students, recent alumni, faculty and staff the opportunity to learn about SALT’s features, to view a website demo, and to share ideas on personalizing the University’s engagement plan.
