Title III Mission


    The Mission of the UMES Title III Office is to serve as the central administrative office for the management of the Title III funded activities.  The office assists the university by ensuring planning, management, budgetary and administrative oversight and providing technical assistance and evaluation of each activity.  These functions, when applied in concert with other campus administrative activities, strengthen the total infrastructure of UMES.  Additionally, the office serves as a liaison between UMES and the U.S. Department of Education.

    The Title III Office must mesh an institutional perspective and comprehension of the institution’s mission, goals and objectives with the Strengthening of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) Program and the Strengthening of Historically Black Graduate Institutions (HBGIs) Program in order to affect long range plans for utilization of Title III funding.
