Loyola University Chicago hosts the Third Annual TRIO Chicago Collaborative Alumni reception! Alumni, TRIO family, and friends are invited. The event will take place on Friday, October 14th, 2016, at Loyola University Chicago's Water Tower Campus on 16 E. Pearson in the Schreiber Center (Wintrust Hall, 9th floor) located from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Many thanks to Roy Saldaña, Jr., the Director of the Achieving College Excellence (ACE) Student Support Services Program at Loyola University Chicago for organizing the event.
This year the speaker will be Dr. Jennifer Dennis, Associate Dean at Oregon State University Graduate School. She is a TRIO alumna of the University of Illinois-Chicago Upward Bound Program (under the tenure of John Long) and the Student Support Services Program at the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign (under the tenure of Dr. Michael Jefferies). Dr. Dennis presented at COE's Annual Conference in San Diego, CA, on the topic of fostering an inclusive climate on campus and addressed what she took from her TRIO experience that she applies to her work with students today.
And thanks to all the partner campuses listed in the attached Reception notice (.jpg) in helping to identify TRIO Alumni.
