RCC To Receive Student Support Services Grant

Congresswoman Nita Lowey announced a $1.1 million grant to support 140 Rockland Community College students under a U.S. Department of Education TRIO Student Support Services program. The students come from low-income or disabled backgrounds we well as students who are first generation college attendees. By offering extra support services such as orientation, tutoring, advisement, counseling, as well as services for disabled and for service veterans, Lowey hopes to see the growing number of underserved students at the college progress toward their academic and career goals. College president Dr. Cliff Wood acknowledged the diverse students in the area who attend the school and believes that the grant will provide programs that will aid in their successes. Last month the Congresswoman announced similar grants to Westchester Community College as well as Mercy College to provide the same services to Westchester students.
