Clovis Community College has received a U.S. Department of Education Title V Developing Hispanic Serving Institutions (DHSI) grant, which will allow the college to develop programs and strategies aimed at making graduation a reality for Hispanic and low-income students.
CCC will receive approximately $600,000 per year for the next five years. Through this grant, “Partnership for Teacher Preparation,” the college will focus on meeting a very large community need for K-12 educators by creating a pipeline that begins with students in our Early College High School and those who are currently employed in our school districts, tracks them through a 2+2 arrangement with a 4-year university partner, and ends with a first-year mentorship in local school districts. To support students, the grant will allow the College to develop and expand individualized student support services including financial literacy and planning, mentoring and coaching, and career planning.
Founded under Title V, Part A of the Higher Education Act, the DHSI program provides grants to assist Hispanic Serving Institutions to expand educational opportunities for, and improve the attainment of, Hispanic and low-income students. These grants enable HSIs to expand and enhance their academic offerings, program quality, and institutional stability. Clovis Community College has had several successful USDE Title V DHSI grants since 1999.
