VITERBO UNIVERSITY RECEIVES FIVE-YEAR $1.5 MILLION TRIO GRANT FROM FEDERAL STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES PROGRAM

 LA CROSSE, Wis. – Viterbo University has received a five-year $1.5 million TRIO grant from the U.S. Department of Education to provide academic support services to first generation college students.  

The Student Support Services program provides numerous academic support services to students, including tutoring, writing and math assistance, academic workshops, exam preparation, and accommodations for students with diagnosed needs. The program is designed to provide support that encourages retention and graduation of first-generation, low-income students and students with disabilities in pursuit of a college degree.

Academic services provided through Viterbo’s Learning Center have been funded by a grant since 1978.

“We are excited to be able to continue to provide quality services to first generation students and with supplemental funds from the institution to provide academic support services to all students,” said Jane Eddy, director of Viterbo’s Learning Center.
