College of St. Joseph has been awarded a $90,000 grant over two years from the Davis Educational Foundation. The grant is for a project titled “Fostering Student Success through Campus and Community Engagement.”

This project will focus on providing a more effective delivery that integrates academics with campus and community engagement while keeping the cost affordable for students and families.

“We are very pleased to receive this generous grant from the Davis Educational Foundation,” CSJ President Rich Lloyd said. “The college is grateful for the Foundation’s support of CSJ and this project.”

The project includes collaboration with Vermont Campus Compact to develop policies and practices that give students the skills and habits of thoughtful and compassionate leaders and citizens.

The grant was received from the Davis Educational Foundation established by Stanton and Elisabeth Davis after Mr. Davis’s retirement as chairman of Shaw’s Supermarkets, Inc.
