New emergency grant helps students stay in school
New emergency fund programs at Wisconsin campuses, including UW-Green Bay, will shore up a patchwork of stop-gap efforts, and be publicized to students so they know help is available. The full story can be found at JSonline. UW-Green Bay Associate Prof. Denise Bartell said students may not attend classes for a couple of weeks if they need a car to get to campus, it breaks down, and they have to work more hours to pay for repairs. They fall behind in class and may drop out of college if they aren’t succeeding, she said.
