The University of Tennessee Southern has been awarded a five-year Title III Strengthening Institutions Program (SIP) grant, totaling over 2 million dollars. By providing funds to improve and strengthen academic quality, institutional management, and fiscal stability, the SIP grants enable eligible higher education institutions to better serve low-income students.
The grant, which was effective 1 October 2020, will enable the College to launch undergraduate degree programs in three high-demand STEM areas–Computer Information Systems, Cybersecurity, and Public Health Education. In addition, over the five-year period the grant will allow the College to strengthen its technological infrastructure with new equipment in labs and classrooms and to better track student success with new data analytic technology.
