The Title III Historically Black Colleges and Universities program is funded by the U. S. Department of Education and is one of many initiatives funded by the federal government as part of a mission to ensure equal access to education and to promote educational excellence for all Americans. The purpose of the program is to provide financial assistance to establish or strengthen the physical plants, financial management, academic resources, and endowments of HBCU institutions, so that they may continue to participate in fulfilling the goal of equality of education.
It is the responsibility of the Title III Administrative Office to ensure that all funded administrative and academic activities are managed according to the College and U.S. Department of Education rules and regulations.
The President's Grant
The Title III program is generally known as The Presidentís Grant due to the close association the program has with the futuristic vision that a president has for the institution. At Trenholm State Technical College, the President is the force that leads the directives of the program. The Title III Program is administered by the Title III Director, who reports directly to the President and ensures the required oversight and direction of the program.
