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.
SAC members provide strategic guidance on many details, such as marketing approach, positioning, messaging, communication channels, scheduling, and more. Projects include, but are not limited to:
Event Planning: HUECU holds on-campus events to empower the community to make informed financial decisions. From informal, fire-side chats in the Houses, to large forums featuring expert guest speakers from the financial services industry, and everything in between.
Product Offerings for Students: HUECU takes the Student Advisory Councils’ advice into consideration when considering different banking products for students at Harvard College.
