Gutter oversees our Personal and Family Financial Planning Program, which is registered with the CFP® Board of Standards, Inc. to meet the education requirement.

The common theme that connects Gutter’s Research, Teaching and Outreach is helping households achieve financial security. This has involved research examining how socioeconomic status, financial education, personal psychology, and financial socialization are related to financial behaviors. In the context of this model, Gutter currently explores how financial education is related to financial behaviors and whether or not it is effective as a treatment resulting in improved financial decision making. One focus is on the issue of financial socialization and learning more about the role social learning plays in predicting financial behaviors. Gutter and Garrison (2008) and Gutter, Copur, and Garrison (2010) as well as a recently completed MS Thesis (Garrison, 2010) have further contributed greater understanding to forces shaping financial behaviors by connecting social learning opportunities to financial dispositions and behaviors. This line of research has funding from Great Lakes Higher Education Guaranty Corporation, National Endowment for Financial Education, and the FINRA Investor Education Foundation.
