Introduction to Title III Asian American Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution (AANAPISI) at Coastline Community College: The New Asian American Pacific Islander Generation Initiative (NAAPIGI)

The New Asian American Pacific Islander Generation Initiative (NAAPIGI) is our name for a five–year (2015-2020) grant to make Coastline a stronger, more effective college for Asian American and Pacific Islander students. NAAPIGI is funded by the U.S. Department of Education Title III AANAPISI grant. However, the programs and services funded under this project are available to Coastline students irrespective of ethnicity.

History of the Title III AANAPISI Grant

What is the Title III AANAPISI Grant?

"Title III AANAPISI" is our shorthand name for a five-year grant awarded to Coastline Community College by the U.S. Department of Education. The purpose of the grant is to help Coastline serve our students more effectively by becoming a stronger, more responsive institution.

About the Name

Title III

“Title III” signifies a section of an act of congress, the Higher Education Act of 1965. Title III of the act authorizes grant programs to strengthen educational institutions. Some Title III programs are set aside for colleges with a prescribed percentage of students of a particular ethnicity.

AANAPISI

Our grant is for colleges with an enrollment that is at least 10 percent Asian American or Native American Pacific Islander, and which includes a significant percentage of low-income students. The official name of the program is Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions, abbreviated AANAPISI. The abbreviation is pronounced “anna-PEEZY.”

How Coastline Received the Grant

Coastline has been designated by the U.S. Department of Education as an Asian American Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institution (AANAPISI). Following its designation, the college applied for and was awarded a five-year, $1.5 million grant, aimed at improving outcomes for its Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) students. To fulfill its obligation to these students, who constitute more than one quarter of Coastline’s total enrollment, the college launched the Title III AANAPISI project.

Through our 2010-2015 Title III AANAPISI grant funding, Coastline Community College was able to offer and institutionalize the following Title III supported programs and student support services:

  • Embedded Tutoring

    Embedded Tutoring is a tutoring service in which a former student returns to a class as a peer tutor. Embedded tutors attend all lecture and lab sessions and are available to help other students with class material.

  • guideU Student–Mentor Connection

    The guideU Student–Mentor Connection provides you with the extra help you may need to successfully navigate your higher education experience. The mentors are Coastline faculty and staff members serving as volunteers. Your mentor is your source for answers to college questions in general, or to “guideU” in the right direction to all Coastline services including academic or career counseling.

  • STAR Program

    Coastline's STAR Program helps you complete your coursework faster so that you can get in, get out, and get working! Many STAR students are also just looking for a fast–track path to a 4–year university, and STAR helps them accumulate the units they need to transfer.

  • Student Success Center

    Onsite and online tutoring is available for many Coastline courses. Students can get assistance with any type of writing or math–related assignments. Course–specific tutors are also available for many departments.

  • Supplemental Instruction

    Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a tutoring service in which a former student returns to a class as an expert peer tutor. SI leaders attend all lecture and lab sessions as well as conduct a weekly review session (typically 1–2 hours) with students.

The New Asian American Pacific Islander Generation Initiative (NAAPIGI)

What is the focus of NAAPIGI?

Using the momentum from our past Title III AANAPISI Grant, the direction will be to create innovative services and build a thriving student community focused on success and support.

With the generous help of a faculty and staff task force, the Coastline Grant Team wrote a proposal documenting a number of student identified gaps:

  • A campus “study center” as they have no place to study at home
  • More advance face-to-face transfer courses
  • A complete college curriculum at one site
  • More culturally sensitive staff and faculty personnel
  • Learning communities to provide an infrastructure where students can share their common experiences and see cultural understanding without being embarrassed.
  • Activities related to either their cultural or major.

The Department of Education approved the proposal. Assuming Congress continues appropriating the necessary funds each year, Coastline will receive a total of $2 million from 2010 through 2015.

Objectives of NAAPIGI

Coastline’s proposal described a plan with three objectives. As required by the U.S. Department of Education AANAPISI program, the objectives apply to Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) students. The services to accomplish those objectives are available to Coastline students irrespective of ethnicity. Accomplishing the objectives will yield these outcomes, all by September 2020:

  • Increase the fall-to-fall persistence rate by 3% annually of first-time, full time, award and/or degree seeking AAPI students.
  • Increase by 60% the number of AAPI students who complete an A.A. or A.S. degree within three years or less.
  • Increase by 40% the number AAPI full time, degree-seeking students.
Target Outcomes for Coastline AAPI students
Year Objective 1 (Persistence Rate) Objective 2 (# of Students who completed AA/AS degrees) Objective 3 (# of Degree Seeking Students)
201659.4%26705
201762.4%27745
201865.4%30805
201968.4%35875
202071.4%42945

To fulfill its obligation to these students, who constitute more than one quarter of Coastline’s total enrollment, the college launched the Title III AANAPISI project.

With the generous help of a faculty and staff task force, the Coastline Grant Team wrote a proposal documenting a number of problems. Two were especially acute. Compared to other community colleges, too few Asian American or Pacific Islander students (AAPI students) at Coastline were earning an A.A. degree and too few were transferring to a four-year institution. The number of AAPI students enrolling in degree-applicable courses was also a matter of concern. We proposed a plan that responded to all three of these issues.

The Department of Education approved the proposal. Assuming Congress continues appropriating the necessary funds each year, Coastline will receive a total of $2 million from 2010 through 2015.

Objectives of the Coastline Project

Coastline’s proposal described a plan with three objectives. As required by the U.S. Department of Education AANAPISI program, the objectives apply to Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) students. The services to accomplish those objectives are available to Coastline students irrespective of ethnicity. Accomplishing the objectives will yield these outcomes, all by September 2015:

  • A total of 250 more AAPI students, originally underprepared for college work, will enroll in degree-applicable courses.
  • A total of 150 more AAPI students will earn an A.A. degree.
  • A total of 100 more AAPI students will transfer to a four-year college or university.

Project Timeline

The college plans to accomplish these objectives by undertaking a number of Title III AANAPISI Activity Components during the five project years of the grant. The project years are:
