IPO Program Honored by ACE

Most recently, TCC was recognized by ACE Foundation honoring the work done by the committee on international programs.

Kudos would be due to Barbara Johnson, current chair for the International Education Committee, for winning a grant under the new FIPSE (Fund for Improving Post-secondary and Secondary Education) program, Disseminating Proven Reforms. The grant will fund a two-year project to desseminate the TCC model for international education to five community colleges -- two in Virginia, two in Colorado and one in North Carolina. The projects first meeting was November 1998 at TCC

FIPSE grants are very difficult to win, and are considered to be the most prestigious of all federal grants for education. According to the request for proposals for the grant, the program will fund only projects proven to be effective.
