The Developing Hispanic-Serving Institutions (DHSI) Program is a U.S. Department of Education grant program that provides grant funding to assist HSIs to expand educational opportunities for, and improve the attainment of, Hispanic students. These five-year grants also enable HSIs to expand and enhance their academic offerings, program quality, and institutional stability.
Clovis Community College has enjoyed a long history as a Hispanic Serving Institution, having more than 25% of our students identifying as Hispanic. We have received several Title V awards over the past 20 years.
Clovis Community College has an active Title V Individual grant that began in October 2020.

In 2020, Clovis Community College was awarded a $2,995,925 Title V DHSI Grant from the United States Department of Education. The Title V project, "Partnership for Teacher Preparation" focuses on two main tasks: "developing seamless education pipelines featuring engaging instructional strategies" and "developing effective, individualized student support services." The grant's first focus will be "on instruction by (re)designing STEM and education program courses as integrated and engaged." The second focus will be on "intrusive student support services, supplemental instruction, and teacher-mentoring." Additionally the grant will fund training and development for faculty, construction and equipment/supplies for classroom renovations, and software development for financial aid and assessment.
