Title III Part A and Part F Grants
In 2015, the College was awarded two Department of Education Title III five-year grants. The Title III Part A Grant will address roofing, plumbing, and electrical work necessary to keep the buildings functional, while preventing damage from the elements. Streets and sidewalks between campus buildings will be repaired or replaced with new asphalt and concrete. An updated fire alarm system will be put in place, and the College will make improvements to campus grounds to address storm water drainage. The College will also participate in a campus assessment of several of its facilities to determine estimated costs for upgrades, and generate a long-term facilities plan to prioritize and guide future repairs. The Title III Part F Grant will focus on increasing access to baccalaureate degrees through the development and delivery of one online bachelor degree. The College will also use Title III support to gain accreditation approval to offer one master’s degree program, and the hiring of qualified faculty to develop coursework and provide master’s level instruction. Additional activities to be carried out over the next five years include raising contributions from donors, strengthening alumni relationships, and increasing the number of scholarships available to UTTC students. Title III funds will support participation in relevent professional development opportunities to improve efficiencies and increase capacity, and enhance the skills and knowledge of College faculty and staff.
