On July 30, St. Augustine College received a $10,000 grant from the Jenzabar Foundation to expand its Writing Across the Curriculum initiative. This program improves writing and comprehension skills for students whose first language is not English. The program was begun in 2011 at St. Augustine College and has been remarkably successful. In almost every course in which students are enrolled, writing assignments are required in order to assess what the students are learning, and help them improve writing skills.
The Jenzabar grant will support tutors who can offer assistance that is not available to students in class.
“We are enthusiastic about partnering with St. Augustine to help students succeed in their college career,” stated John Beahm, Executive Director of the Jenzabar Foundation.
“Our community progress depends largely on its educational attainment, and with this grant from Jenzabar, many students will be in a position to succeed,” added Dr. Andrew C. Sund, President of St. Augustine College.
Jenzabar is a leading provider of the software, strategies, and services for higher education institutions.
