Grant Received

Georgia Military College has been awarded a Title III Planning Grant in the amount of $1.9 million. The grant, funded by the U.S. Department of Education, will be dispersed over a five-year period beginning this school year in the amount of $398,700.

Georgia Military College’s proposal, entitled, “Strengthening Learning Support Services,” was submitted in the spring of 2006 and was chosen as one of only 35 in the nation to receive this funding. Dr. Paula Harms Payne, GMC Vice President for Institutional Research and Planning, said, “The money from this grant will be used to develop a Teaching and Learning Resource Center for faculty development and student support services. A facility on the GMC Milledgeville campus will be remodeled to house the center which will include two classrooms dedicated for developmental math students and teachers and two classrooms dedicated for developmental reading and writing students and teachers. The center will also include a math lab and a reading and writing learning lab.”

GMC’s new Teacher and Learning Resource Center will provide students, faculty, and staff access to automated systems, giving all stakeholders information needed to improve student learning. Payne said, “As a result of the services provided by the center, students enrolled in developmental English, reading, and math classes will succeed at a higher rate, and faculty will have increased knowledge and best use practices in their classes.”

In 2004-2005, Georgia Military College received a Title III Planning Grant from the U. S. Department of Education in the amount of $21,878.
