Eggleston tells of AANAPISI success at RLC

Institutional Effectiveness — Kay Eggleston, Richland College president, joined a leadership panel with the Community College of Guam, the Asian & Pacific Islander Scholarship Fund (APIASF), and the National Commission on Asian American and Pacific Islander Research in Education (CARE) during the Achieving the Dream 2014 conference in Orlando this week to share the impact of Richland College’s Asian American Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution (AANAPISI) grant in relation to institutional capacity and student success. Richland College received the minority serving institution (MSI), five-year $1.4 million AANAPISI grant from the U.S. Department of Education in 2010, and the funding has helped to promote collegewide understanding of under-resourced students’ needs, focus on improving student success in gatekeeper and developmental courses and assist minority, low-income male students through creation of a textbook lending library.
