October 7, St. Augustine College Proclamation Day!
Forty years ago, St. Augustine College was founded. Its mission was to serve the Hispanic community, provide accessible higher education, economic development opportunities, and create a lifelong learning mentality for themselves and their families.
Today, St. Augustine College has served more than 10,000 students, has an array of Bachelor and Associate Degrees, and has become the only fully Spanish/English institution of higher education in the Midwest.
Barriers to educational opportunities are still present in the Hispanic community. St. Augustine College continues to work diligently to create programs and strategies to foster attainability and raise student achievement in and out of the classroom.
Allowing a community to take control, enable critical thinking, and to place them in a position of empowerment is what drives change within the home, community, and country. This is what St. Augustine College thrives and continues to do.
