Evaluation of Title III Strengthening Institutions Grant
Ohio Dominican University, Columbus, OH (2008-13)

EPI was contracted by Ohio Dominican University as the evaluator of its Title III, Part A, Strengthening Institutions grant. Title III grants support institutions of higher education serving low-income students by providing funds to improve and strengthen the academic quality, institutional management, and fiscal stability of eligible institutions. Ohio Dominican is using its grant award to improve its freshman retention rate and to improve its overall retention rate of African American students. As part of the grant evaluation, EPI will conduct quarterly focus groups with faculty, students, administrators, and staff, and will prepare a final summative evaluation report.
