Grant Summary

$225,000 over 24 months to create a common intellectual experience through anchor texts in Destination Graduation, Writing “WR 121” and Communications “COMM 114/111” and a more coherent experience of general education through engagement with core texts in selected humanities courses. The Destination Graduation course is a 1-credit required course to help familiarize students with the college's resources and supports and enhance their skills for success in college. Students will have the option to earn a Liberal Arts Award by completing 10 credits of the designated sections of WR 121, COMM 114/111 and other humanities courses. The redesigned Destination Graduation and WRIT/COMM courses will respectively reach 70 percent and 45 percent of the incoming class.
