Title III

In 2002 the U.S. Department of Education awarded City College of San Francisco a Title III, Part A, Strengthening Institutions Program grant to fund a project named “Delivering on the Promise of Student Success.”  The five-year project, funded at approximately $340,000 per year, includes two major areas of activity.

Activity One, Increasing Persistence and Retention by Developing Enrollment Systems, has three components:
•    computerized assessment,
•    electronic educational plans for individual students, and
•    a computerized tracking system to identify students at risk and provide them with
      support services.

Activity Two, Increasing Student Achievement through Developmental Program Reform, has two components:
•    development of instructional labs to increase the achievement of underprepared
      students in English, Math, and ESL, and
•    development of new instructional technologies that integrate basic skills and
      learning, connecting instructional labs with the classroom.

The Title III Strengthening Institutions Program is a competitive grant program that was established by Congress as part of the Higher Education Act of 1965.  The purpose of the program is to provide grants to eligible institutions of higher education to improve their academic programs, institutional management, and fiscal stability in order to increase their self-sufficiency and strengthen their capacity to make a substantial contribution to the higher education resources of the nation.

The Title III grant project at City College of San Francisco is managed by the Project Director, Dean of Special Projects Larry Klein, in consultation with the Title III Steering Committee.
