Grant Information


The U.S. Department of Education Office of Postsecondary Education H.S.I. Title V Cooperative has awarded a $650,000 grant to Los Angeles Valley College (LAVC) to develop and implement strategies to help improve student success at all three institutions. 

"Engaging for Student Success" is a cooperative project with East Los Angeles College (ELAC) and Los Angeles Trade-Tech College (LATTC). All three institutions will work together to develop activities that address low progress rates, low persistence and low completion rates of students. 

The grant focuses on the following areas: faculty development, adaptive course learning. Valley College is taking the lead on the area of faculty development by establishing a teaching innovation academy for instructors who teach students who are at-risk of failing or repeating "gateway" courses. It will also work with ELAC and LATTC on exploring technology-blended learning environments for students.

In addition, as part of this grant, there is an Endowment Match component to allow for continued professional development after the grant ends.
