Glen Oaks receives Title III grant

Glen Oaks Community College is the recipient of a Title III grant totaling $2.25 million over a five-year period from the U. S. Department of Education.
The award, $450,000 per year through 2020, was effective beginning Oct. 1 and is part of a federal Strengthening Institutions Program grant under the Higher Education Act of 1965. The focus is to improve retention and completion.
The grant primarily covers three areas, said Tammy Russell, Glen Oaks director of institutional effectiveness and research: increased student engagement using a student coach model; improved teaching and learning through faculty development and classroom redesign, with an emphasis on enhanced technology; and increased capacity to use institutional research in order to improve the college’s effectiveness.
