featured speakers

Thanks to everyone who submitted suggestions for the 2019 keynotes. We’ve taken your suggestions, made some decisions, reached out to some people, and hope that we’ll have some great information soon. Stay tuned!!!

sponsor or exhibit

Our sponsors play a key role in our ability to put on the Summit. The growth of sponsors over the years has allowed us to keep registration prices steady and increase the number of attendees.  We truly value our relationship with our sponsors and how they help make the Summit what it is.

Indiana University

The 2019 Summit will be held at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.  The Summit is being brought to Indiana University to help celebrate the university's Bicentennial.

Indiana University was founded on January 20, 1820, making it one of the oldest public universities in the nation. To celebrate its bicentennial, IU has developed a multi-year, multi-campus program that will recognize and chronicle IU history, showcase the university’s significant contributions to the world, and set a course for the next century. For more information about the Bicentennial program, please visit 200.iu.edu. 

We are extremely appreciative of Indiana University and its Office of the Bicentennial for their support for the 2019 Summit, including a sponsorship that is allowing us to create the first ever student experience event.


About the summit

The summit has existed, albeit under a lot of different names, since 2014. In 2017, we brought together some of the best people in the higher education financial wellness world to help make the Summit what it is today.

about us

We don't have the ability to rely on a full-time staff to pull off all the wondrous things that happen at the Summit.  Instead, we have many friends across the country who volunteer their time help put on the Summit each year.

Every year, we try and pick the best programming to come present at the Summit. And every year, we realize we need more help.
