Albertus Magnus College Partners with Hartford Public Library’s Park Street Branch
Promote Higher Education to Latinx Community
New Haven, Conn, January 12, 2022 – Albertus Magnus College is pleased to announce its partnership with The Hartford Public Library Park Street Branch to promote the importance of education after high school to Hartford’s vibrant Latinx community. The program is free of charge and will take place every third Monday of the month through 2022 (unless a holiday). The goal is to reach Spanish-speaking parents and bilingual students and provide them with resources and awareness of education options beyond high school.
“It is important to culturally bridge the importance of a college education in the 21st Century,” said Sr. Ana Gonzalez, O.P., coordinator of international admissions and the leader of the Lunes de Educacion sessions. “Together, we will dispel the mystery of college – from application to acceptance and everything in between including financial packages and visiting campuses.”
In addition, Albertus will host two College Fairs – one on February 12 at 10 a.m. and one in September (TBD). Albertus Magnus College is on the verge of being named a Hispanic Serving Institution, meaning 25-percent of its student body is Latinx.
