Title III Grant
On October 1, 2018, QU received a $2.25 million grant from the U.S. Dept. of Education’s Title IIIA Strengthening Institutions program. The second Title III award in QU’s history, Expanding Student Access to STEM will fund development of new majors in sought-after areas of computer science and business analytics, along with support for the teaching of mathematics and undergraduate research.
Like the previous Title III grant (2003 – 2008), this award will enable the institution to transform teaching and learning through the use of educational technology and best practices validated by research. The five-year project, directed by Barbara Schleppenbach, will include the development of curriculum, construction of new labs, and enhancement of math and science classrooms.
