Grant helps outreach at Cabarrus College

Cabarrus College of Health Sciences recently received a grant of $5,850 from the North Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities (NCICU) to start an initiative to increase access to health science degree programs.
The COMPASS program (College Outreach and Mentoring Providing Access for Student Success) is designed to increase the awareness of and access to higher education opportunities in the health professions.
The objectives of the COMPASS program are to educate students about career opportunities in health care; guide students on what they need to do to prepare academically for admission to a health-care related degree program; and provide assistance in navigating the admission and financial aid processes.
Student ambassadors will be selected from the Cabarrus College student body. Ambassadors will participate in on-campus and off-campus activities to raise awareness of opportunities available in the health sciences.
Ambassadors will serve as mentors to individuals considering a degree in the health sciences and provide guidance and support as they determine their programs of interest, and subsequently navigate the application process.
Dr. Dianne Snyder, chancellor of Cabarrus College said, ěWe are thrilled to receive funding from the NCICU to support this outreach initiative. This will help us communicate more broadly the career opportunities available in health care.î
For additional information about the COMPASS program contact Dr. Mark Ellison, director of admissions, at 704-403-1616, or email mellison@ cabarruscollege.edu.
