The formula grant program, commonly known as the Title III Program, is designed to assist in improving university programs, fortifying management and enhancing educational opportunities for all students. While Title III funds help to “equalize educational opportunities” at HBCUs, the ultimate goal of Title III is to decrease dependence on governmental financial support and increase reliance on endowments and private funding sources.
SUNO has been a recipient of Title III funds since 1967 and has received vital financial assistance to establish and strengthen the University’s academic services, student development efforts, faculty development enhancements, information technology initiatives, physical plant improvements and financial management support. Hence, Title III funds have allowed us to more effectively fulfill the goal of equality of educational opportunities for our students.
With the renovation of the University Center, Library and Bashful Administration Building complete, SUNO is ready to start construction on four few buildings:the Millie M. Charles School of Social Work, the Education Building, the Natural Science Building, and the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences Building.
