POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- A grant from the state is hoping to keep Marist College students in school.
The state awarded Marist College a $426,417 grant from the Liberty Partnership Program. The LPP is the only state-funded dropout prevention program directly connected to higher education which prepares students for post-secondary education and careers,
Recipients of these higher education initiative grants will provide programming for at-risk students to successfully graduate and transition into postsecondary education or a career path.
“It’s critically important that we develop new strategies to influence students as active participants in their own learning,” Board of Regents Chancellor Betty Rosa said. “LPP grants make it possible for colleges to create strong school and community partnerships to help keep New York’s children in school and continue into higher education and careers; it’s a priority for the Board of Regents and State Education Department.”
