Programs at a glance

The Federal TRIO Programs (TRIO) are Federal outreach and student services programs designed to identify and provide services for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. Students enrolled in today's TRiO programs mirror our nation's multicultural and multiethnic society.

One-on-One

TRiO staff have an opportunity to work one-on-one with each student. TRiO professionals get to know each student on a first name basis. TRiO staff are personally committed to the success of their students.

Reality Based

Like their students, many TRiO professionals had to overcome class, social, disability, and academic and cultural barriers to succeed in higher education. As a result, they can effectively relate to their students and know how to motivate young people and adults in spite of the obstacles that often discourage first generation students.
