Title III


The mission of the Title III program is to facilitate and make available federally funded resources in order to strengthen the academic quality, student services and outcomes, institutional management and fiscal stability of the University. The ASU Title III Program aims to strengthen the infrastructure of the University and to enhance the delivery of academic programs while developing students from freshmen to senior year and beyond graduation by preparing students for career opportunities.

Office of Title III Programs

Title III of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, Strengthening Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Program, authorizes a program of special assistance to strengthen the quality of eligible institutions. Funded by the U. S. Department of Education, Title III B and Title III F grants are amongst 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. This program provides financial assistance to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to establish or strengthen their physical plants, financial management, academic resources, and endowment-building capacity.

The 2018-2022 Title III B and the Title III F (SAFRA) grants at Albany State University are directly aligned with the institution's strategic plan.  The overarching goal for implementation of these activities is to increase student enrollment, retention, progression, and graduation rates and to increase the capacity of the institution to provide and manage resources (financial and human) that facilitate quality service to all customers.

The institution is also a recipient of the HBCU Masters Grant of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA). This grant is intended for qualified master's degree programs at an eligible institution that provides a program of instruction in mathematics, engineering, the physical or natural sciences, computer science, information technology, nursing, allied health, or other scientific disciplines in which African Americans are underrepresented and has students enrolled in such.  Currently, Albany State University provides support to the Master of Science Program in Nursing. The intent of these grant funds is for the usage of the institution to improve graduate educational opportunities for Black and low-income students.
