Student Services Rendering

Title V Pathways project makes student services renovation a reality

Thanks to the Title V Pathways project at Galveston College, key student services spaces on the first floor of Moody Hall are being renovated to improve student success, retention, persistence to graduation and transfer among the college’s student population.

The renovation is just one of several initiatives of the “Pathway Model for Improved Teaching, Advising and Transfer at a Hispanics-serving Community College,” which is funded by the US Department of Education.

The overall goals of the project are to clarify pathways for students, help students get on a guided path, help students stay on a guided path and ensure students are learning in order to increase retention (course completion and fall-to-fall retention), improve course success, increase completion rates of a recognized credential and increase successful transfer to 4-year institutions.

PBK Architects is project architect. TUCON Unbehagen Construction is project contractor.

Dr. Sandra Metoyer is director of the Title V Pathways project.
