On July 30th, 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. Jenzabar is a leading provider of the software, strategies, and services for higher education institutions.
