The regulations provide institutions and agencies that host TRIO program with broad discretion to manage them. This webinar is designed to assist participants to understand how to read and interpret this regulatory language, locate regulations that answer individual questions, and review those regulations that answer the questions most frequently asked. The session particularly focuses on the OMB Uniform Guidance, which discusses required notifications and approvals by the staff of the U.S. Department of Education.

This session is designed to assist new TRIO programs and new staff from established programs to learn where to find basic information about their most pressing questions.

In a time of increased accountability for student outcomes, it is important to use data from the APR to improve programmatic efforts and practice. College access and success programs collect a wealth of data that is submitted to the Department of Education each year to provide evidence that these programs are effective and successful. But what else can this data be used for to help your program? If professionals can use this information to identify the root of educational challenges and track progress, they can more readily develop action plans that will have a positive impact on their students. This webinar will cover ways to translate data into goals, priorities, and strategies that are clearly linked to planning and decision making processes.

Selection of students for an SSS project is pivotal to achieving objectives. This webinar will review federal eligibility criteria for admitting students into an SSS project. However, because there are so many eligible students at an institution, what additional criteria do you use to choose students for the SSS project? This webinar will also investigate the use of a Selection Criteria Matrix as well as documentation of a selection process in a Policy and Procedures Manual.

Onboard

Hit the Ground RunningNew to college access and success? COE's Onboarding Orientation and Professional Development is designed to bring you quickly up to speed in three modes of learning. First, a one-on-one conversation with a supervisor identifies pressing professional development needs. Second, an on-site, in-person workshop affords the opportunity to connect to leader experts from other programs. Finally, the learning modules enable practitioners to review the history, resources, regulations and effective strategies to do their job competently and successfully.
