KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City’s Metropolitan Community College system is receiving $12 million in federal grants to better support students.

College officials said in a release the grants come from the U.S. Department of Education.

Some of the funds will be used to improve remedial courses designed to catch students up and prepare them for regular coursework. Money also will be used for enhanced tutoring, expanded peer mentoring and improved advising.

Nancy Russell, who heads the system’s Institute for Workforce Innovation, says the intensive support systems are proven to be effective and will be of great value to students.

Metropolitan Community College has five campuses in the Kansas City area, including a Business and Technology campus.
