Education & Training

TRIO Professional Development and Staff Training

Annual training is provided via electronic and live conferences and webinars; internships, seminars, workshops, and the publication of manuals designed to assist TRIO personnel in improving the operation and success of the TRIO projects.  These trainings are carried out in the various regions to ensure that growth opportunities are available to all TRIO personnel in the local projects. The topics covered in the trainings include but are not limited to legislative and regulatory requirements; assisting students in receiving adequate financial aid; the design and operation of model programs; the use of appropriate educational technology; and strategies for recruiting and serving hard to reach populations.  Whether you are new to the staff of a project funded under the Federal TRIO Programs or have been involved with a TRIO project for many years, there may be a training session that can assist you in doing your job more effectively. We encourage you to look at the information provided here and to share it with your colleagues.
