The Health and Life Sciences Career Initiative is a consortium of seven Connecticut colleges and universities, funded by a U.S. Department of Labor grant, geared toward identifying and providing academic programs to meet employment needs. Eastern is focused on strengthening its offerings in the health and life sciences to complement its existing state-of-the-art programs in biology, biochemistry, and health information technology.
Under this grant, Eastern is providing the Summer University Research Program (SURP), with a track in biosciences and a track in physical health/public health. Eastern will also serve as a leader in insuring that new community programs created under the grant will bridge into bachelor’s degrees and beyond.
