About Money Smart Week

Created by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago in 2002, Money Smart Week® (MSW) is a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances. 


This is achieved through the collaboration and coordinated effort of hundreds of organizations across the country. 


Lehman Library, Shippensburg University, is a registered MSW partner organization and has been participating in Money Smart Week since 2013 by providing financial literacy programs for Shippensburg University students on topics such as managing student debt; basic budgeting; retirement planning; and how to prevent identity theft.  

2016 Money Smart Week Program




In accordance with  the library’s efforts to provide financial literacy to our students and graduates,  from the College of Business in particular, this year the library coordinates with the Finance and Supply Chain Management Department to invite a former chairman of the Celtic F.C. Fergus McCann, to give a special lecture. 


The topic of presentation is based on his personal experiences in starting and managing his businesses, what makes them fail or success.


Fergus McCann’s presentation will broaden Shippensburg students’ awareness of the real-life risks and opportunities in running the businesses.

Mr. McCann will deliver a public presentation on Thursday April 28th in Old Main Chapel. The topic is Fergus McCann – The Do’s and Don’t’s of  Starting and Running a Small Business, Lesson Learned from Personal Experiences.” The presentation to a capstone class in Business Majors could be arranged as time permits. His public presentation will enhance learning experience to all students at Shippensburg University.
