MassBay CC Gets its Largest-Ever Grant; New Program Aims to Boost Haiti Partnership

MassBay Community College was awarded a five-year, $2 million grant under the U.S. Department of Education’s Strengthening Institutions Program, which aims to help campuses serve lower-income students by enhancing academic quality, institutional management and fiscal stability.

The Wellesley, Mass. college also won approval of a three-year Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) grant from the Education Department for a collaborative with the University of Massachusetts Boston to help develop teacher education and study abroad between Massachusetts and Haiti.

The Haitian-American president of MassBay, Carole M. Berotte Joseph, recently traveled to Haiti for a meeting of the Haitian Higher Education Consortium. Watch NEJHE for more on the consortium’s work.
