Project SSStrong will sponsor the Student Development Institute each spring of our Title III, Part A Strengthening Institutions Grant.
Aligned with our Title III Project SSStrong goals, this Institute is designed to bring together faculty and staff from across the District to explore promising practices that could help increase student success, persistence and completion.
Participants include members of the TCC community as well as representatives from area school districts and our university partners.
Guest speakers and breakout session facilitators share their expertise and encourage discussions about how we can work together to support student success.
