Grant funded by the Department of Education
(2015 – 2020)
As math remains the largest obstacle to student success, persistence, and completion, Project Math Paths (PMP) endeavors to improve NVC’s three-year graduation rate, through a streamlined enrollment, advising, and placement process, as well as through the acceleration of students through the math core, by eliminating developmental math course hours.
Title V - Developing Hispanic-Serving Institutions:
What Is It?
The Developing Hispanic-Serving Institutions (DHSI) Program provides grants to assist Hispanic Serving Institutes (HSIs) to expand educational opportunities for, and improve the attainment of, Hispanic students. These grants also enable HSIs to expand and enhance their academic offerings, program quality, and institutional stability.
The U.S. Department of Education and the HSI Division do not officially grant an institution an HSI designation. Institutions are considered HSIs based on their grant award status for the duration of their grant award, which is five years. The Department defines an HSI as an institution of higher education that has an enrollment of undergraduate full-time equivalent students that is at least 25 percent Hispanic at the end of the award year immediately preceding the date of application.
