CCRC Helps Students Achieve Academic Success

TC’s Community College Research Center will provide expertise and guidance to community colleges that are recipients of the Lumina Foundation for Education’s “Achieving the Dream: Community Colleges Count" grant.

TC's Community College Research Center will provide expertise and guidance to community colleges that are recipients of the Lumina Foundation for Education's "Achieving the Dream: Community Colleges Count" grant. The project provides a $50,000 investment grant to those institutions committed to enhancing the academic success of low-income and minority students.

The multi-year initiative, which will be launched in Fall 2004, will involve community colleges in New Mexico, North Carolina, Florida, Texas, and Virginia. Twenty-seven community colleges will participate in the first year of this project that will eventually expand to include additional colleges that meet eligibility criteria. These include at least 33 percent minority enrollment or 50 percent students who receive government-supported financial aid as well as regional accreditation.

The article, entitled "Selected Community Colleges to Participate in Initiative to Increase Students," appeared in the July 1 edition of the Black Issues in Higher Education.
