Scope of USDE Grants Tester1

 

SCOPE OF USDE GRANTS

All grants are designed to increase enrollment, retention rate, and completion rate of Hispanic and low-income students. This goal is achieved through the following:

PPOHA: Providing Post-baccalaureate Opportunities for Hispanic Americans

The PPOHA Title V Grant is a USDE-funded grant dedicated to enhancing the institutional environment for graduate students. The 2009 PPOHA, the year NMT was funded, was the first ever Department of Ed grant awarded for graduate programs. The scope of NMT’s PPOHA includes three priorities: updating technologies, redesigning curricula, and developing a Center for Graduate Studies. Each of these priorities houses specific activities and/or programs which benefit the graduate student body.

SES: A Model for Improving Student Engagement and Success

The SES Title V Grant is a USDE-funded grant awarded in 2010. The SES grant is dedicated to ensuring success of the freshman entering higher education at NMT. The scope of SES consists of two priorities: updating technologies and curriculum redesign. Each of these priorities houses specific activities and/or programs which benefit the student body.

HSI - STEM: Entryway to Engineering Success

The HSI-STEM Title V Grant is a USDE-funded grant which is dedicated primarily to the successful transfer of students coming in from two-year institutions. The scope of NMT’s HSI – STEM consists of three priorities: updating technologies, redesigning Engineering and Mathematics curricula, and articulation with three designated two-year institutions. Each of these priorities houses specific activities and/or programs which benefit the student body.

SCOPE OF USDE GRANTS

All grants are designed to increase enrollment, retention rate, and completion rate of Hispanic and low-income students. The scope of these grants is to update technologies through smart classrooms and technological collaboration areas, update curricula in various departments, and develop support systems for all levels of students from freshmen to transfer students to graduate students. These support systems include Learning Communities, Peer Mentors, Tutors, and other programs being developed through the grants’ initiatives.

 

SHARED RESOURCES

By leveraging the three grants off of each other, NMT is able to consolidate institutional resources and more effectively utilize the USDE resources. Some shared resources include personnel, project time and effort on policy and procedure, internal controls, linked projects, and program oversight.
