Title III Programs at

J. F. Drake State Community and Technical College

 

Overview


Through Title III federal funding, J.F. Drake State Community and Technical College is afforded financial assistance to develop, enhance, and improve activities for strengthening academic programs, faculty and staff development, technology, student services and instructional facilities. The college receives these federal funds from two programs: Title III Part B, Strengthening Historically Black Colleges and Universities (Title III) and Title III Part F, Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act (SAFRA). The funding is awarded annually on a non-competitive basis.

The Title III Part B, Strengthening Historically Black Colleges and Universities Program provides financial assistance to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to establish or strengthen their physical plants, financial management, academic resources, and endowment-building capacity.

The Title III Part F, Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act supports allied health and STEM fields at the college. This funding source has allowed the College to implement the Medical Assisting Program in the Health Sciences Division and needed monies to improve the facilities of Health Sciences Programs and STEM classrooms.

Both programs provide a unique opportunity for J.F. Drake State Community and Technical College to enhance its programs and to move into the mainstream of American Higher Education. The programs are significant funding streams for the College and have funded project activities designed to help meet the College’s strategic goals.

Project Administration is the executive arm of the College’s Title III programs. It is administered by a Project Administrator, who manages all aspects of the Title III programs. The Project Administrator reports directly to the President of the College, thereby ensuring a holistic focus on all of the College’s strategic planning goals. All Title III funds awarded are used to help accelerate the College’s progress toward effectively and efficiently achieving its goals.
