Who we are at TRIO

TRiO-S3 is one of nine Federal TRiO programs funded by the U.S. Department of Education that supports eligible students excel through the academic pipeline--from middle school to post-baccalaureate programs. TRIO began with demands for greater access to higher education in the 1960's. It was the first national college access and retention programs to address the serious social and cultural barriers to education in America.
