Student Equity and Achievement (SEA) Program funds are available for professional development and intervention activities that boost achievement for all students and work toward eliminating achievement gaps for traditionally underrepresented students. As outlined in Education Code 78222, SEA funding projects and activities must:
- implement activities and practices pursuant to the college's implementation of Guided Pathways
- ensure that students complete their educational goals and courses of study, and
- provide curriculum, instruction, and support services to ensure that students deficient in English and mathematics complete a course of study in a timely manner
While there is not a set maximum limit for the amount that an individual can request as this depends upon the type of project proposed, all requests must be for reasonable and justifiable amounts as they relate to the type of activity proposed.
Proposals must have approval from the requestor's direct supervisor. Requestors will need to work with the Office of Institutional Research in advance of submitting their proposals to ensure that we have the data to evaluate the efficacy of the proposed project.
If the request is for an intervention activity with a data component, the requestor must work with the Office of Institutional Research in advance of submitting their proposals so as to ensure that we have the data to evaluate the efficacy of the proposed project. Requests must be submitted via email to StudentEquity@mpc.edu and using the Student Equity Project Funding Proposal. If your request is for funding to support a professional development opportunity, please submit the Student Equity Professional Development Funding Request form via email to StudentEquity@mpc.edu.
All requests will be reviewed by a sub-committee of the Student Success Committee who will make the final approval of projects to be funded. Please submit proposals at least 60 days prior to the allocation of funds.
After the activity, requestors must report out to the College. This will primarily depend upon the type of project proposed however we require submission of an evaluative report on any intervention project to be provided to the Student Success and Equity Office. Also, where appropriate, there may be requirement to submit this written report or a presentation to other campus committees. In some cases, an oral presentation would be appropriate. Examples of this would include sharing information learned at a professional development training during a Flex Day workshop or a brown bag lunch sessions.
