Title V Developing Hispanic-Serving Institutions Program
In 2019, SFCC was awarded a U.S. Department of Education Title V Hispanic Serving Institutions grant totaling $3,000,000 over five years. SFCC’s Title V project, Minority Academic Pathways to Success (MAPS), seeks to build systemic institutional capacity to implement the Guided Pathways model – a transformational approach that removes barriers Hispanic and low-income students face in achieving post-secondary success. Project objectives include the establishment of meta-majors, restructured developmental math education, enhanced support and advising systems, and faculty and staff professional development. In addition, MAPS establishes a $450,000 Hispanic and low-income student endowment fund ($225,000 grant funds, $225,000 matching funds). SFCC goals for the MAPS project:
Increase Hispanic and low-income student retention, graduation, and transfer rates by implementing Guided Pathways, including the establishment of meta-majors, restructured developmental math education, and clear pathways to careers and further education.
Increase Hispanic and low-income student retention rates through enhanced support and advising systems, and intervening when students are off track.
Strengthen Guided Pathways and student support systems through faculty and staff professional development that focuses on Hispanic and low-income student success.
