About Title III
“The purpose of the Title III 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” (*34 CFR 607.1).
In October 2009, Pearl River Community College was awarded a five-year Title III Grant of approximately $2 million from the U.S. Department of Education’s Strengthening Institutions Program and the Higher Education Act entitled Integrated Learner Support System.
The PRCC Title III Grant aims to increase student success and retention through three key components:
· The development of an Integrated Learner Support System;
· The development of online services and advisement tools; and
· The development and piloting of Supplemental Instruction supported Developmental Mathematics and English, English Composition I and II, College Algebra, Biology, Psychology, and World Civilization.
