Grant award supports program to build
partnership with Met School in Newport

Nov. 8, 2013

The CCRI Admissions Department has been selected to receive a Rhode Island Partnership for Success mini-grant in support of its North End Opportunities for College and Career Access Awareness Program, coordinated by Deb Watson, associate director of Enrollment Services, and Jude Tomasino, associate director of Admissions/Transfer.

The mini-grants aim to support new and existing statewide partnerships that encourage greater collaboration between PK-12 and higher education and advance college access and readiness in Rhode Island. Funding for this project has been made possible by the generous support of the Rhode Island Office of Higher Education, the College Access Challenge Grant program and Rhode Island NSF EPSCoR.

The Admissions Department has designed the CCRI program as a way to build a stronger partnership with The East Bay Met School and CCRI’s Newport County Campus. The Nov. 1 event at CCRI’s Newport campus focused on accessing higher education and student leadership opportunities as well as transfer and career pathways once a student graduates from CCRI.

Director of Admissions Terri Kless said that the program is just one of several new initiatives the department has planned. “The Admissions Department is always looking for opportunities to meet with students and share information about the programs and services available at CCRI,” she said. “Reaching out to high school students and providing them with an on-campus experience can be the first step in creating excitement, anticipation and a smooth transition to college.”
