Tri-Cities lands $1.1M grant for student services
“WSU Tri-Cities wants to support all students who are motivated to learn and who have a genuine desire to attend college,” said James R. “Dick” Pratt, vice chancellor for Academic Affairs.
The grant is financing three new staff members who will do one-on-one counseling, advising, and mentoring through the cultural change of going to college. The staff also will give workshops on topics including study skills, library resources, financial aid, career preparation, and personal financial planning. The grant also will improve access to tutoring; support new students during the admissions process; and cover field trips to cultural events and other university campuses.
