JFK University Commited to Hispanics

Hispanics/Latinos did you know that John F. Kennedy University, which as part of its mission is committed to furthering educational opportunities for a diverse student population, has been awarded a $2.6 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education to fund a new Hispanic Undergraduate Success Center. The state-of-the-art Center will provide students with a full suite of services, including tutors and mentors, a lending library, as well as retention model system to support the academic success of Hispanic students.

The five-year, Title V Developing Hispanic-Serving Institutions Program grant will, among other things, pay for an innovative system to track individual academic progress and determine where support is needed, enabling counselors to take a pro-active approach in focusing on student needs. This effort would help JFK University identify those who are at-risk or high-need, allowing the institution to begin working with them earlier, rather than waiting until they are placed on academic probation or fail a course.
