Title III of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, Strengthening Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Program, authorizes a program of special assistance to strengthen the quality of developing institutions which have the desire and potential to make a substantial contribution to the higher education resources of the nation, but are struggling for survival and are isolated from the main currents of academic life. Amendments to the Act have altered some elements of the program, but it remains as written — an instrument to provide assistance to institutions demonstrating a constructive effort to strengthen themselves.
Alabama A&M University has three programs funded under Title III Strengthening Grants Program: (1) Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), (2) Historically Black Graduate Institutions (HBGI), and (3) Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act (SAFRA). Each program has funded project activities designed to help meet various University Strategic Goals.
