What is Title III and what does it mean for Northeast?

During the summer of 2009, Northeast Community College was awarded a Title III Strengthening Institutions Grant by the United States Department of Education with an anticipated five-year total of $1,965,374. The grant is being utilized to provide funding to expand access to and improved the retention and success of students enrolled in online degree programs at Northeast. The Title III grant is a project that will run from October 1, 2009, through September 30, 2014. Wayne Erickson, Northeast dean of continuing education and distance learning, serves as project director. The Title III grant provides funding for the development of more online courses and degree programs and to expand the design and delivery of distance learning courses and learning support services through faculty and staff development. It will also provide new and increase access to online student support services at Northeast. Title III funding also established the college technology center (CTC) in Maclay 116 to help faculty and staff integrate interactive digital audio, video, text, and image resources into online courses and services and to pilot emerging delivery technologies and formats at Northeast Community College.
