What is Title-V?
UNM's Title-V, Improving Campus Climate for Hispanic Students, is a program to increased persistence and graduation rates of Hispanic and low income students by collaborating with staff and faculty in creating student engagement.
Who funds the Title-V program?
The UNM Title V Project is 100% funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education in the amount of $2.8 million dollars.
Is Title-V a Hispanic student only initiative?
The University received Title-V funding because we are a Hispanic serving institution. The program's goals are to increase persistence and graduation rates of Hispanic and low income students however, the program benefits all UNM students.
What are the components of Title-V?
The project focuses on three initiatives.
