This past June, Saint Francis was awarded a $38,338 grant from the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board. Saint Francis was one of 65 schools in Pennsylvania selected out of a pool of over 100 applicants to receive this grant.

The PLCB grant is intended to help schools maximize their resources and prevent the sale, storage, transportation, consumption and possession of alcohol by minors through funding for various programs and support groups that will discourage these activities.

According to Lynne Banks, SFU’s associate dean of students, the University has received this grant for the last 15 years.

“All of the money from the grant goes toward drug and alcohol education,” said Banks. “[The grant] provides outreach for students and assists with programs to offer students help.”

Since the University was awarded the first grant 15 years ago, SFU officials say there has been a steady decrease in student alcohol usage and abuse.
