Increasing Student Success Through Technology
The U.S. Department of Education Strengthening Institutions program helps eligible institutions to expand their capacity to serve low-income students by providing funds to improve and strengthen academic quality, institutional management, and fiscal stability.
The Title III Strengthening Institutions Program at Arkansas State University Mid-South is implementing strategies that are transforming instructional and service delivery through increased technology capacity and more effective uses of technology. Primary grant objectives are to (1) improve and expand online instructional delivery through curriculum design and related professional development for faculty and staff; (2) develop and implement a broader, more robust array of online student services, to include admissions, tutoring, and retention management; and (3) increase the number of online courses and degrees to support student access and scheduling flexibility, including the addition of a career pathway in Computer Programming, which includes two certificates of proficiency, a technical certificate, and an associate of applied science degree.
