The first component of the grant focuses on establishing new technology programs for in-demand occupations. Angelina College will develop two new Associate of Applied Science (AAS) programs in Network Administration and Software Development with this grant. These programs will equip our students with the necessary skills and knowledge to pursue careers in high-demand fields, providing them with increased employment opportunities and contributing to the economic growth of our community.
The second component of the grant aims to develop and strengthen our support services for students. Angelina College will expand current services and develop new on-campus and online tutoring services to ensure our students receive the academic support they need to succeed. In addition, we will implement a comprehensive mentoring system that uses peer and faculty mentors to provide students with additional guidance and support throughout their college journey.
Angelina College is grateful to have received $599,968 in grant funds for the first year of the project, and we anticipate receiving a total of $2,999,868 over the next five years. We are committed to utilizing these funds to improve the quality of education and support services we offer our students.
Stay tuned for updates on our progress and the impact of this grant on our campus!
