WEST HARTFORD – The University of St. Joseph, with the support of U.S. Congressman John Larson, was awarded a federal Title III Strengthening Institutions Program grant in the amount of more than $2.08 million. The grant, Raising Educational Achievement (REACH), was approved by the U.S. Department of Education.

REACH is a new program that enables student success by improving academic assessment and college readiness skills for students, supporting faculty in meeting students’ learning needs, enhancing resources for underprepared students and systems for tracking and serving at-risk students and increasing support and leadership opportunities for second- and third-year students.
