Grant Type:  Individual Development Grant

ABSTRACT

Mountain View College, one of only two Hispanic-Serving Institutions in North Texas, is a comprehensive two-year public community college in southwest Dallas County, Texas.  Mountain View College is making special efforts to increase the college-going rates and economic and educational attainment levels of the area.  

Over the life of the grant, Mountain View College proposes the following activities:  

Activity One:  Programs to Encourage College Readiness initiates programs to encourage student success before college enrollment.  The activity focuses on increasing partnerships and enrollments by reaching out to underserved communities and developing a more welcoming environment for Hispanic and low-income students.  The activity has three components:  a high school liaison program, the development of community linkages, and a spring-summer bridge program.  

Activity Two:  Improved New Student Success Through Instructional Innovations and Support After College Enrollment will include the development of a Center for the Success of New Students to enhance academic and social support for new students entering the college.  The Center and its key components will centralize services for new students to encourage their success and it will offer a central location for new students to easily access the services they need.  Moreover, the Center will ensure that Mountain View College advisors, counselors, and faculty can use a case-management approach to provide early intervention to students who need additional help.  A broad faculty professional development program will promote learner-centered strategies that will address the needs of our primarily Hispanic and low-income students.
