Our Mission

TRIO Student Support Service program is a community of support for first-generation students, students who come from low-income families and students with documented disabilities.

This program is designed to help these students achieve their goals. Our dedicated advisors provide customized assistance to increase lifelong learning and development for each person.

TRIO is funded by a federal grant and connected to the Educational Opportunity Association (EOA). The EOA hosts educational opportunities and provides scholarships to students in the Midwest.
