Title III Support

The Title III Program is a United States federal grant program aimed at improving education. It began as part of the Higher Education Act of 1965, which sought to provide support to strengthen various aspects of schools through a formula grant program to accredited, legally authorized Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) under the Department of Education.

The Chemistry and Physics Department at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff has greatly benefited from Title III support in purchasing state of the art instruments for student teaching and research. The equipment purchased by Title III includes: Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer (FTIR), Gas Chromatography /Mass Spectrometer (GC/MS), High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Cyclic Voltammetry and numerous small instruments. Also classroom improvement with current user friendly technology is credited to Title III.

The following instruments have been ordered or are in the process of being purchased; Portable lightweight NMR Spectrometer, one Micro-plate Reader with fluorescence capability, ten  UV/Visible Spectrometers, six Bench-top Centrifuges, one Laptop Computer, one Ellipsometer and 13-Desktop computers.

It’s our strong belief that acquisition of these instruments will greatly enhance the quality of instruction to our students in several laboratory courses in chemistry and physics. This will result in an increased participation of our undergraduate students in successful graduate studies and careers in professional areas, chemistry, physics and other STEM disciplines.
