The inaugural 2012 Summer Institute was held June 11-15. The first of three summer institutes was successfully executed and accomplished.  This first institute illustrated the instructional content, methodology, and pedagogy for all the State of Tennessee’s Personal Finance Standards and also addressed the grant deliverable by introducing and presenting three new College Access & Success curriculum modules.

Per the grant proposal the institute was developed to be delivered as a graduate-level course, all participants are eligible to receive 3 credit hours of graduate credit at MTSU HSC 6100: Teaching Personal Finance upon successfully completing all requirements as outlined in the course syllabus. In addition, participants are expected to teach the course, complete with the three additional College Access modules, during either the Fall 2012 or Spring 2013 semesters.
