Rowan College at Burlington County has earned a $2.2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education aimed at improving student outcomes, it announced Monday.
The two-year college based in Mount Laurel said in a news release that the five-year grant, called “Strengthening Institutions,” will be used in four main ways:
- Increasing the number of students who complete 30 credits within their first year;
- Improving retention and graduation rates among low-income and minority male students;
- Creating a more meaningful orientation process to support first-year students;
- Investing in technology and training to create more high-tech classrooms and low-cost course materials.
