Remembering Our Past While Supporting Our Future!
Since the early 1960s, TRIO programs have been committed to the dream of education for all Americans regardless of race, ethnic background or economic circumstances. Today TRiO is an umbrella organization for five programs: Upward Bound, Talent Search, Student Support Services, Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program and the Educational Opportunity Centers. Enrolling over 250,000 students a year through these initiatives, TRIO continues to support first-generation, low-income, under-represented student groups.
