Service-Learning Proposal Description


Briefly describe the project and the community need to be addressed.

Answer The student will be making themselves available, weekly, to tutor other students who seek assistance in the Finance 320 (Principles of Finance) course. They will be assisting in the academic success of other students, using the knowledge that they have already attained in this course. There is a distinct need for this in the College of Business as this course is required for all business majors and is one of the more difficult courses in the BUSCORE curriculum. There is only one supplemental instructor for this course, thus having more individuals who are equally qualified to help students will increase the success rate of our students in the College of Business.


What is the mission of the agency or organization?

Answer The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire College of Business prepares students for success through an inclusive, engaged, and experiential education and aspires to be a leader in preparing students to succeed by providing innovative teaching, distinctive academic programs, and community engagement while strengthening the foundation of respect and inclusion.


What skills are required for this project? 

Answer Students will be required to have passed the FIN 320, showing proficiency in their understanding of time value of money, risk and return, security valuation, project evaluation, the cost of capital, and other FIN 320 subjects. The student will need to effectively communicate finance concepts as well as inputs to formulas employed in the course. They must also display effective use of a financial calculator.


What are the objectives for the student learning and service?

Answer The objectives for the student will be to: -Assist any current FIN 320 students with course concepts and problems. -Help students of majors outside of Finance to better understand financial topics. -Provide a service to the Accounting & Finance department and the College of Business that leads to the success of our students in a challenging course. -Share knowledge that will lead to better equipped UWEC graduates.


What are the availability requirements for the student?

Answer The student is to be available approximately 2 hours per week (15 hours between now and semester end) in-person (Schneider Hall), or remotely (via Zoom) for FIN 320 students to ask questions and get help with in-class problems.
