NC State is dedicated to helping our faculty and staff become and stay financially well. Financial Wellness is one of NC State’s Six Elements of Wellness and is defined as the “awareness of current financial position and budgets and having the resources to meet basic needs by saving and spending wisely”. Our goal is to help educate and empower staff and faculty for financial success by having a variety of available resources.
