Students sit on a bench

In Person Seminars

Guest Speaker- Regions will provide one opportunity each year for a guest speaker to appear on campus as part of this financial literacy program. Regions will work with Auburn to determine how to best utilize this appearance, e.g. with student athletes, general student population, or even those through the Career Center.

Real Talk with Regions

Regions will host a live event on campus for students one time per year. This event will feature a Regions subject matter expert(s) speaking on topics of interest to the targeted students. Potential topics could be careers in banking, leadership or a similar theme.

Next Step Seminars- Regions will augment the robust digital platform with in-person learning in the form of Next Step Seminars, a collection of proprietary workshops led by knowledgeable Regions Bankers who will provide tips and action-based advice to get students on the road to financial wellness. Seminars typically range from 45 minutes to one hour and can be presented to groups of varying sizes.

An experienced Financial Wellness Relationship Manager will work with Auburn to customize a plan that will help students develop a strong base of personal finance skills. Regions can put together an educational plan that meets the needs of the audience. Regions Next Step Seminars resonate authentically and include information necessary to help students understand the financial skills they will need upon matriculation.
