TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Big money is coming to one local college.
Saint Mary of the Woods College was awarded nearly $2 million in grant money from the US Department of Education’s Strengthening Institutions Program.
The grant will support a number of projects aimed at increasing enrollment and retention.
The funding will also help extend the college’s operations by making specific campus improvements and expand opportunities, including seven new smart classrooms, and a new student information system.
“The grant that we wrote is very specific things and will allow us to do things that we’re not doing yet or some things that we planned on doing more quickly and all of it is aimed at student success,” Saint Mary of the Woods President Dottie King said.
The five year grant will fund 100 percent of the project at the school.
