Dr. Bob Walker, coauthor, of Personal Finance: Building your Future, visited UCA on Monday, March 4, 2013 to meet with students and faculty in the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences.
Cowritten with his wife, Christy Walker, the text is in its first edition and being used by all students in the Family and Consumer Sciences department for their Personal and Family Finance course.
Walker spoke to three different groups throughout the day. Students submitted questions about why he wrote the book, how it was writing with his wife, and what he thinks is most important in personal finance for college students to know.
They also met with him after his lecture for more specific questions before Walker made the road trip back to Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Walker is the chair of the Department of Business at Mt. Mercy University.
