TCC Awarded Landmark Grant

By  | 

Tallahassee Community College landed a huge grant to improve student retention and development.

TCC was awarded a $1.8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education.

The five-year grant is made through the Title III Strengthening Institutions Program.

One goal of TCC is to create a monitoring and tracking system to provide early intervention support to students.

"What we want to do is focus on our developmental education curriculum and also focus on our counseling services. Between two of those, with some new techniques, we want to try and keep students here longer and graduate more of them," said Ted Snow, dean of Academic Support Programs with TCC.

This marks the largest single federal award in the college's history.
