The Department of Education Minority Serving Institution grants present unique opportunities for faculty and staff professional development. Whether it is virtual one-on-one sessions or institution-wide on-site workshops, Marygrove Consulting provides professional development in the following areas:
Project Personnel Development
We train your existing staff and new hires necessitated by a grant award on all the performance and compliance details associated with executing an MSI grant. We walk through all the grant requirements from financial management to purchasing goods and services to reporting. We emphasize each staff member’s role in accomplishing the project goals and objectives and help them develop action plans to fulfill their job duties.
Asset-Based Mindset Training
Many of the MSI grants require faculty and staff training in asset-based mindset strategies. Marygrove Consulting has developed a comprehensive program of asset-based mindset teaching and interaction aimed at creating a more welcoming underrepresented students on your campus. We tailor professional development offerings for faculty and staff that focus on training in culturally responsive/relevant pedagogy and equity- mindedness.
Grant Opportunities for Minority Serving Institutions
We work with your faculty and staff to explore other grant opportunities associated with your MSI designation. We begin with the basic “Grant Writing 101” advice and then focus on government grants that meet the strengths of your academic programs. Faculty and staff are invited to learn how to research available funding sources and given instruction on how to interpret the regulations and application requirements. The overall federal process is explained in detail, giving your faculty and staff a competitive advantage.
