John Krupansky: TRIO is a program that was developed through the Department of Education. And uh…what we do is we try to provide any services that a student might need; through the time when they start to the time they finish here.
We help them prepare for the graduation and the transfer. We work with students who are first-generation college students, or they have a restricted income, or if they have any kind of documented disability.
We do mentoring and advising to teach them what this whole experience is going to be about, and to let them know that there's someone in a program that's really interested in their success.
