Truman College has been awarded more than $2.7 million through a Developing Hispanic Serving Institution (DHSI) grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
Here’s where Truman plans to spend the money over the next five years.
Most of the money will go toward the SDEC. Other funds will go to hiring a Director of Student Development, tutors, coaches, and furniture for the SDEC. $25,000 has been allotted for technology for neurodivergent learners.
DHSI grants are awarded to Hispanic-Serving Institutions or HSIs to increase academic and program offerings to ensure continued student success. Truman has a Hispanic student population of 25% or more, qualifying it as an HSI. Leaders at Truman hope increasing support for student-focused spaces on campus will promote a sense of belonging and support.
