“In the wake of Hurricane Harvey and flooding that had a significant impact on the lives and financial conditions of our students and community, Bauer College has partnered with several organizations,” Undergraduate Business Programs Associate Dean Frank Kelley said. “We are thankful for this all volunteer effort by ‘Mattress Mack’ and many professionals in the financial, legal, and real estate fields donating their time and talents.”

“The Harvey Financial Recovery Boot Camp is designed to help those impacted by the hurricane take a few deep breathes, and gain access to valuable resources to help them now,” Mark Woodroof said. “The recovery process is not a sprint, so don’t make sudden decisions for you and others, it’s a marathon and our hope is this boot camp will help people make the right decisions for their future.”
