HUECU seeks to elevate and empower Harvard College students from diverse backgrounds by providing them with hands-on experience that will prepare them to excel as thoughtful, balanced community and business leaders.
Established in 1939, HUECU is a not-for-profit, member-owned financial cooperative, exclusively serving the Harvard community and distinguished through our reinvestment of profits in our members and the local community, particularly in the form of free financial education.
The purpose of the Student Advisory Council (SAC) is to advise HUECU in its pursuit of campus-wide financial wellness by consulting on financial education programming, university engagement events, and student banking services.
Example: HUECU holds a multi-day personal finance course during Wintersession, which features expert guest speakers from the financial services industry – from Venture Capitalists discussing the basics of investing, to Human Resources directors detailing how to maximize every dime of your benefits, and everything in between. SAC members will provide strategic guidance on the existing curriculum, schedule and timing, and marketing channels.
SAC provides students with exposure to the not-for-profit financial world. Members of SAC will have an unparalleled relationship with HUECU C-suite executives and the Board of Directors, which include leaders from HBS, The COOP, MGH, and PayPal, among others. SAC members will report directly to HUECU’s staff liaisons.
