J. Michael Collins is a UW faculty member and currently serves as the faculty director of Center for Financial Security. His expertise is consumer decision-making in the financial marketplace, including the role of public policy in influencing credit, savings and investment choices. His current research focus is on financial capability and well-being with a focus on low-income families. He has recently been appointed to the Wisconsin State Commission on Retirement.

Michael's talk will draw on that committee work and will draw on a wide range of topics such as the changing role of social insurance, including Social Security, financial capability and well-being, health care out of pocket costs, debt, including the growing use of mortgages in retirement, and how families are changing in their approaches to comprehensive financial and legacy planning with each successive generation.

Please join us for what should be an entertaining and informative seminar.

This session will be recorded.

Food pantry contributions   

Both cash and checks payable to Mt. Zion Baptist Church Food Pantry will be accepted.


Enter Oakwood grounds at the traffic light at Island Drive and Mineral Point Road. Take the left fork and then the second driveway on the right to enter visitor underground parking. Push the button for assistance. Park in any visitor stall; take elevator to first floor lobby where signs or a receptionist will help. When you exit the underground parking the garage door opens automatically. You may also park in a surface visitor spot (marked spaces along the drive and up the hill toward the large lot).

On foot, enter Heritage (6205 Mineral Point Road) at its main entrance (third driveway on the right, at stop sign) or enter the auditorium doors directly from the lower drive.

If taking the bus, Madison Metro Bus Routes 14 and 67 stop on Mineral Point Rd in front of Oakwood, if traveling easterly, or across Mineral Point Rd from Oakwood if traveling westerly. 

Here is a link to the Oakwood Village University Woods campus map showing the location of underground parking lot and surface parking spaces. The location of the Arts and Education Center is also highlighted in yellow.
