Extension Specialist, University of Minnesota Extension
- Family and social relationships
Joyce Serido, Ph.D., is an associate professor in the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Minnesota. She also is an extension specialist at University of Minnesota Extension.
Serido is interested in financial behavior as a bidirectional and unfolding family process. Specifically, she studies how families communicate and interact about finances and how these processes affect financial behavior. Her research focuses on three interrelated life domains: (1) financial parenting; (2) financial behavior and economic well-being; and (3) financial behavior and romantic relationships.
As an extension specialist, Serido’s teaching focuses on connecting research and practice to engage individuals, communities, and state and national organizations in addressing pressing issues facing families. She collaborates with Extension educators and community partners to empower youth and their families to make more informed financial choices, particularly regarding academic achievement and financing higher education.
