re: minority serving institutions

In a representative sample of all institutions receiving grants, the largest proportion of grant funds—43 percent—went to improving academic quality. One Native-Hawaiian-serving institution renovated laboratories so old, the report notes, that they were used as a set for the television show Lost to represent a laboratory from the 1950s.

Thirty-four percent of the money went to improving student-support services like tutoring, remedial courses, and academic counseling. Twenty-eight percent went to institutional management. One Alaska Native-serving, two-year institution established four full-time financial-aid positions, the report says, after the college had previously used its bookstore manager as a financial-aid counselor.
