It is TRiO’s mission to help low-income, first generation, and/or disabled students graduate from university.  This is achieved through the implementation of an all-encompassing approach to the “college experience”. TRIO assists students by providing academic counseling and tutoring, helping them to become financially literate, offering guidance on pursuance of a graduate degree, and providing advice to students when they experience day-to-day, non-academic issues.
