NASNTI

(Native American Serving Non Tribal Institutions)

In October 2021, the Seminole State College NASNTI Program was awarded a 5-year grant. The grant will allow NASNTI to revitalize and expand its Computer Science Program to bring it up to date with industry standards while adding options in Security, Programming, and Esports. The grant also supports upgrades in IT infrastructure and establishes necessary equipment in lab spaces to support updated and specialized computer science instruction. The NASNTI Program will also develop seminars (face to face), videos/modules (online), and Talking Circles to address academic success skills, technology skills, civic/professional skills, cultural awareness, and wellbeing/resilience skills.  

Within the five years, the NASNTI team will work closely with contractual disability service experts to design foundational courses to align with principles for Universal Design Learning and strengthen support for online students with disabilities by appointing a disability service professional development leader to conduct two interactive training workshops on best practices for supporting students with disabilities in an online learning environment. NASNTI will also establish an Access Lab on campus that will provide flexible access to computers equipped with assistive devices and software for students with disabilities.
