Welcome to Mi CASA Es Su CASA! This website provides updates on the Lone Star College-North Harris Title V grant for Hispanic-Serving Institutions. Funded for $2,587,367 over five years, this initiative is Connecting students to the campus community, Acclimating them to the rigors of academic life, helping them Succeed and self-improve for the duration, and preparing them to Achieve and compete in college and beyond.

The goal of the program is to guide students through each of the four CASA phases through three new initiatives. The first two initiatives - iMALLS (Information Technology Enhanced Multidisciplinary Academic Learning Lounges) and the new CAST (Center for Academic Success and Transition) – are designed to connect students to LSC-North Harris resources and opportunities to improve academic preparedness and engagement. The third initiative - MATCH (Meaningfully Aligned Targeted Curriculum/Courses for Hispanic and Underserved Students) – ensures students are receiving best-fit instruction based on proven methods and needs. The CASA model encourages students, staff, and faculty to Connect, Acclimate, Succeed, and Achieve.

Completing its first year of implementation, the LSC-North Harris Title V grant, Mi Casa es Su Casa, is Connecting students to the campus community, Acclimating them to the rigors of academic life, helping them Succeed and self-improve for the duration, and preparing them to Achieve and compete in college and beyond. The grant has a single activity: Increase the persistence, completion and transfer rates of Hispanic and underserved students by: 1) Improving student engagement and preparedness through increased student awareness of and access to LSC-NH resources and opportunities; and 2) Improving student success rates by providing best-fit instruction to the LSC-NH student population.
