WHAT IS UCAN MANAGE IT?

UCan Manage It is a resource dedicated to assisting University of Cincinnati students  and parents with enhancing their ability to manage financial resources effectively.

The President's Advisory Council on Financial Literacy defines personal financial literacy as "the ability to use knowledge and skills to manage financial resources effectively for a lifetime of financial well-being." (2008 Annual Report to the President)  Personal financial literacy is more than just being able to balance a checkbook, compare prices or get a job. It also includes skills like long-term vision and planning for the future, and the discipline to use those skills every day.
