June 15, 2019 — Building First-Generation Services Using TRIO Student Support Services as a Base
TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) programs are designed to improve retention, graduation, and transfer for first-generation students. However, campus leaders may become frustrated because TRIO services cannot be made available campus-wide. Facilitated by a team of TRIO professionals, this workshop will discuss the key elements of a TRIO SSS program and how this federally funded program can assist in building more comprehensive first-generation services to meet the needs of a college campus. You will examine the opportunities and limitations that TRIO regulations provide in serving both enrolled and non-enrolled students.

This event is a pre-conference workshop during the 2019 NASPA Conferences on Student Success in Higher Education.
