TRIO programs are vital to the access, collegiate success, and degree attainment of first-generation, low-income students, adult clients, veterans, and students with disabilities. TRIO programs and services have consistently assisted the population we serve and have more than 2 million alumni across the country. TRIO often serves as the model for programs focused on retention and completion, and now is the time to strengthen the activities and work of TRIO. TRIO programs are currently experiencing budget cuts and reductions that are directly impacting our ability to seek the support and resources that training and professional development opportunities provide. This webinar series is designed to offer TRIO staff a venue to acquire critical training and information related to program improvement, credibility, and sustainability.
Participants will have the opportunity to discuss the upcoming webinar series designed to address key areas of TRIO programs. The current topics to be presented are TRIO and Educational Opportunity Program advocacy, leadership, and supervision in the TRIO programs, assessment, professional development, required and permissible services, budgeting, and generating and sustaining institutional support.
