Title V Grant
The Community College of Aurora was designated a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) in 2016. To receive this designation, institutions must have an undergraduate Hispanic full-time equivalent student enrollment of 25 percent or more. At CCA, more than 30 percent of the student population identifies as Latinx, and about 1 in 16 students who graduate are Latinx students.
With this designation, CCA applied to a Title V Grant which is a federal grant that gives funds to institutions who are HSI, over the course of 5 years to meet certain objectives and goals. The objectives that CCA identified in its Title V grant are below.
Objective 1: Culturally-responsive pedagogy practices and curriculum refinements in targeted Associate of Science (A.S.) and Associate of Arts (A.A.) courses.
Objective 2: Guided Pathways Communities with embedded Learning Communities for students in targeted A.S. and A.A. degree pathways.
Objective 3: Data-informed culture and practices.
