MNA adds Colorado to its growing portfolio. We are happy to start work with the Front Range Community College (FRCC) in beautiful Fort Collins to externally evaluate their newly funded U.S. Department of Education’s Title III (Strengthening Institutional Capacity) grant over the course of five years. The grant focuses on providing academic and co-curricular supports and opportunities to increase enrollment and enhance student persistence, retention, and completion. This is MNA’s second Title III evaluation work (first being Pellissippi State Community College, TN). With this addition, to date, MNA has worked in 16 states across the U.S.
