HSI Title V Grants
Oxnard College is a designated Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI). The U.S Department of Education Title V HSI Grant assists with strengthening institutional programs, facilities, and services to expand the educational opportunities for Hispanic Americans and other underrepresented populations. Title V grants enable HSI schools to expand and enhance their academic offerings, program quality, and institutional stability.
Project Acceso Y Progreso (2020-2025)
Project Acceso y Progreso goals are to increase Oxnard College’s institutional capacity and impact in three key areas: 1) Student Access 2) Student Retention 3) Student Completion which includes transfer to a 4-year institution as identified by the student’s educational goal. Project Acceso y Progreso will simultaneously create and integrate parallel, sustainable financial literacy educational activities and workshops, group and individualized services into all of the Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP) objectives and activities of the Project Design. Title V funds present a unique opportunity of profoundly impacting core practices within Oxnard College. Acceso y Progreso focuses on innovative, cost-effective strategies that significantly strengthen the infrastructure and that hold the greatest potential for institutionalization and minimizes the need for permanent staff commitments beyond the five-year grant funding cycle. As a direct result of this Title V grant funding, Oxnard College will establish an endowment fund that will support on-going expenditures beyond the five-year grant funding.
