Walters, Nancy; Ayodele, Alicia
Minnesota Office of Higher Education
This report provides information on the outcomes of the Intervention for College Attendance Program, a program of competitive grants awarded to postsecondary institutions, professional organizations and community-based organizations. Funded programs focus on increasing the access and success of groups traditionally underrepresented in higher education by strengthening their preparation and aptitude for postsecondary success. The governing state statute indicates the program is to: "award grants to foster postsecondary attendance and retention by providing outreach services to historically underserved students in grades six through 12 and historically underrepresented college students. Grants must be awarded to programs that provide precollege services, including, but not limited to: (1) academic counseling; (2) mentoring; (3) fostering and improving parental involvement in planning for and facilitating a college education; (4) services for students with English as a second language; (5) academic enrichment activities; (6) tutoring; (7) career awareness and exploration; (8) orientation to college life; (9) assistance with high school course selection and information about college admission requirements; and (10) financial aid counseling." (Minnesota Statutes 136A.861). The statute indicates that by January 15 of each odd-numbered year, the Minnesota Office of Higher Education shall submit a report to the committees in the Legislature with jurisdiction over higher education finance regarding the grant recipients and their activities. This report provides the requested information on ICAP activity from the 2008-09 biennium and for the first year of ICAP activity for the 2009-10 biennium. Appendices include: (1) ICAP Project Map 2010-2011 Biennium; (2) Report Requirements; (3) ICAP Matching Revenue Sources for Fiscal Years 2009 and 2010; (4) Student Participation in the College Access Program; (5) Project Impact on High School Graduation and College Participation; and (6) College Readiness and Retention Indicators and ICAP Project Activities and Outcomes.
