Northampton Community College wins national grant

Northampton Community College has become one of 15 colleges nationwide chosen to receive a $100,000 PRESS for Completion grant from the Walmart Foundation. PRESS stands for Persistence, Retention, and Student Success.

The grant will enable Northampton to involve more full- and part-time faculty in efforts to improve student performance in math and English courses important to students' overall success in college.

Northampton was selected because of its record as a leading college in Achieving the Dream, a national nonprofit organization committed to educational reform.

The project director will be Elizabeth Bugaighis of Bethlehem, dean of education and academic success at Northampton. She will be assisted by Precie Schroyer, assistant professor of English, and Charlie Mathers, an associate professor of mathematics. Both Schroyer and Mathers teach at Northampton Community College's Monroe Campus.
