The Kresge Foundation has awarded a three-year, $850,000 grant to Teachers College in support of the project, “Structuring the Student Experience for Success,” directed by Thomas Bailey, the George and Abby O’Neill Professor of Economics and Education, and director of TC’s Community College Research Center (CCRC). 
 
Bailey and his colleagues at CCRC will collaborate with Macomb Community College, located in Warren, Michigan, to identify challenging aspects of the Macomb student experience, develop recommendations to streamline and simplify the student experience, implement and test the effectiveness of institutional policy and process changes, and disseminate the findings to other colleges in Michigan and nationwide.

The Kresge Foundation is a $3.1 billion private, national foundation that seeks to influence the quality of life for future generations through its support of nonprofit organizations in six fields of interest: health, the environment, community development, arts and culture, education and human services. The Foundation is headquartered in metropolitan Detroit, in the suburb community of Troy, Michigan.
