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 Representatives 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 and virtual 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. SAC Representatives have a large role in planning our annual Wintersession programming.
Marketing: SAC Representatives will assist with HUECU’s social media presence through content creation, creative ideas, and video development. SAC members will, at times, represent HUECU at campus events.
Developing Student Services: HUECU takes the Student Advisory Councils’ advice into consideration when considering different offerings (such as resources, products) for students at Harvard College.
