Financial Literacy Improvement Program
All candidates for the baccalaureate degree must satisfactorily complete 30 or more hours of curricular, extracurricular, or co-curricular service-learning.
UW-Eau Claire finance majors and minors can satisfy 15 hours of their service learning requirement by enrolling in FIN 310, Financial Literacy Improvement Program (FLIP), a one credit course offered by the Department of Accounting and Finance. As a student in FLIP, you will
- Increase your knowledge of personal finance by listening to guest speakers who are working financial professionals.
- Enhance your communication skills by sharing your knowledge of personal finance through presentations to community groups.
- Network with business leaders.
No advanced application required. You no longer have to apply to the department to participate in FLIP. Just register for FLIP when you register for your courses.
For more information, contact Dr. Kristopher Kemper, FLIP coordinator, UW-Eau Claire Department of Accounting and Finance.

Finance students can also receive service-learning credits through the Financial Management Association (FMA). Students may earn credit for service-learning projects through FIN 210. For more information, contact Dr. D’Arcy Becker, chair, UW-Eau Claire Department of Accounting and Finance.
