ÉXITO Title V Grant Program

ÉXITO Title V Grant Program


GateWay Community College, a majority-minority serving institution with a large population of part-time students, serves a diverse population of nearly 7,300 students from the Greater Phoenix area and Maricopa County, Arizona. GateWay’s proposal, Equitable Experience Infused Through Out (ÉXITO) GateWay: a holistic approach to foster student well-being and academic attainment encompasses GateWay’s vision to develop a proactive, student-ready culture that sets the stage for student success from the College’s first contact with a student, through  graduation, and beyond. Furthermore, éxito in Spanish means, “success” and it is the College’s  desire to support students to succeed. Title V funding supports the retention and preparedness of students attending a Hispanic-serving institution.

GateWay's Title V program is designed to increase student success by strengthening developmental education and implementing early academic support strategies. Grant funds will be used to:

  • Design a comprehensive faculty development program
  • Promote the availability of academic support services
  • Establish a student tracking and assessment system

Goals of the Title V Grant

  1. Improve student persistence and course completion by strengthening developmental education and expanding academic support.
  2. Improve student preparedness for academic success by implementing early student support strategies for students as they enter college.
  3. Improve student support services by establishing a data collection and tracking system that provides information on student progression.
