History

The history of TRIO is progressive. It began with Upward Bound, which emerged out of the   Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 in response to the administration's War on Poverty. In 1965, Talent Search, the second outreach program, was created as part of the Higher Education Act. In 1968, Student Support Services, which was originally known as Special Services for  Disadvantaged Students, was authorized by the Higher Education Amendments and became the third in a series of educational opportunity programs. By the late 1960's, the term "TRIO" was coined to describe these federal programs.

Mission Statement

Our goal is to provide academic and other support services to low-income, first-generation college students and students with disabilities in order to increase student retention and graduation rates, facilitate their transfer form two-year to four-year colleges, and foster an institutional climate supportive of their success.
