The purpose of the Grants Committee

  • The Grants Committee (GC) mission is to ensure all grants are in alignment with the college's Mission Statement, Educational Master Plan, and all college initiatives.

Grants Committee Policy Statement

  • All grants should identify and provide specific benefits to the college, which are in alignment with the Mission Statement and Educational Master Plan.

  • All grant submissions must follow the campus-approved process to address the effect on college resources. Fiscal impact to any unrestricted funds or a significant operational impact to the college requires fiscal review as well as approval by the Education Planning Committee and the Institutional Effectivensess Council.

  • All grants should ensure collaboration in coordinating activities throughout implementation.
