Pulaski Technical College has been selected as one of 15 community colleges across the country to receive a $100,000 Walmart PRESS for Completion grant.
The grant program, sponsored by the Walmart Foundation and administered by Achieving the Dream, a national nonprofit leading the nation's most comprehensive non-governmental reform network for community college student success, will enable Pulaski Tech to better engage faculty (especially adjunct faculty) and staff in important campus-based reform efforts and ensure that more students have a better chance of staying in school and obtaining a market-valued credential.
Pulaski Tech was the only college in Arkansas to receive the grant. In addition, the college received $55,000 from the WalMart State Giving Program to enhance its writing lab.
"Pulaski Technical College has met high standards of practice and performance and is well-positioned to tackle one of the toughest community college reform challenges our nation is facing: engaging more full-time and adjunct faculty and staff in student success efforts," said Rachel Singer, Vice President of Achieving the Dream, Inc.
