TRiO Programs

TRiO programs were established by the U.S. Department of Education and began with only three (hence the name trio) programs over 25 years ago. However, they have grown to include: Educational Talent Search, Upward Bound, Student Support Services, Ronald McNair Programs, Equal Opportunity Centers, and Veteran's Upward Bound. All TRiO programs have the same goals-to make a college education more attainable and to increase the likelihood of a student's success. Currently, there are four TRiO programs at Concord University: Upward Bound, McNair, Student Support Services, and Gear Up.
