Frequency: Annually.

Next Data Available: August 2006

Data Validated By: No Formal Verification.
These data are self-reported by grantees. Program staff employ data quality checks to assess the completeness and reasonableness of the data submitted. Project reports do not distinguish between the scope and/or effect of the project goals: small and large goals are both counted in the same manner, and institutions' goals change dramatically from year to year.
 
Explanation: In FY 2003 and 2004, we exceeded our targets for meeting grantee project goals relating to academic quality. From FY 2002 to 2004, overall trends indicate a decrease in the percentage of Title III and Title V project goals that were met or exceeded. Such trends may reflect grantees making progress for a subset of the more easily achieved grantee goals. This would have the dual benefit of helping grantees build from a position of accomplishment, with a series of small wins, and allowing grantees to gain practice in the smaller and more manageable project goals before addressing the more complex and difficult goals. The Department has begun targeted technical assistance and training for project directors in the areas of institutional management and fiscal stability, student services and student outcomes, and academic quality, as well as performance management and the use of data to drive decisions, in order to begin to enhance grantee performance. The Department does not plan to continue this measure in FY 2006.
 
Objective 2 of 3: Improve the institutional management and fiscal stability of the participating Institutions.
Indicator 2.1 of 1: Institutional Management and Fiscal Stability: The percentage of Title III and Title V project goals relating to the improvement of institutional management and fiscal stability that are met or exceeded will increase or be maintained over time.
 
Measure 2.1.1 of 1: The percentage of project goals relating to the improvement of institutional management or fiscal stability that have been met or exceeded.

Explanation: In FY 2003 and 2004 we did not meet grantee targets for meeting project goals relating to the improvement of institutional management and fiscal stability. Goals relating to fiscal stability are among the most important and most difficult to achieve for all institutions. Title III and V institutions, which target underserved populations, do not have large endowments or capital campaigns, but face the same financial pressures that all institutions of postsecondary education must address. The Department has realigned priorities to focus on building partnerships with these institutions; across the federal government, a variety of approaches are being examined for partnerships and other vehicles to help these institutions maintain fiscal strength. From FY 2002 to 2004, overall trends indicate a decrease in the percentage of Title III and Title V project goals that were met or exceeded in institutional management and fiscal stability.
 
Objective 3 of 3: Improve the student services and student outcomes of the participating Institutions.
Indicator 3.1 of 1: Student Services and Student Outcomes: The percentage of Title III and Title V project goals relating to the improvement of student services and student outcomes that are met or exceeded will increase or be maintained over time.
 
Measure 3.1.1 of 1: The percentage of Title III and Title V project goals relating to the improvement of student services or student outcomes that have been met or exceeded.
