In Spring 2016, English faculty partnered with the Office of Student Equity and Success to apply for this grant and we were awarded $1.5 million. The BSSOT Grant at Merced College aims to implement multiple measures for student placement into English basic skills courses, design an Interdisciplinary Learning Center (ILC) to provide additional learning support to students, place Embedded Peer Mentors (EPMs) into a large percentage of English courses, and implement accelerated curriculum.
