U.S. Department of Education Strengthening Institutions
In 2007, Texas Wesleyan University was selected to receive nearly $2 million from the U.S. Department of Education’s Strengthening Institutions Program. Wesleyan was the only university in the state to receive this award and was one of 20 institutions nationwide. With a goal of increasing student success in terms of retention and graduation rates, the Strengthening Institutions Program funding totals $1.98 million over five years beginning October 1, 2007.
The project has four major focus areas:
The University continues to increase the amount of grants and contracts received to support student scholarship, outreach, technology infrastructure, economic development, and teaching and learning. Among these: the Rosedale Redevelopment Initiative, School of Education multi-year grants, the TexPrep Pre-Freshmen Engineering Program, and the U.S. Department of Education’s Strengthening Institutions project. The President’s Review, Winter 2009 details these exciting accomplishments.
Texas Wesleyan has always been known as an institution that values good teaching with an emphasis on scholar-teachers. With a continuing tradition of quality faculty and small class sizes, Wesleyan is focused on moving to a new student-centered learning paradigm.
