Central Lakes College is pleased to announce its TRIO Student Support Services Program has been re-funded for an additional five years by the U.S. Department of Education. The grant, which funds the program at $280,024 per year, was increased from $235,000 per year in the previous grant cycle.
“I am so proud to be part of a learning community of students and staff pulling in the same direction toward the dismantling of barriers, while empowering students toward academic success, graduation and transfer to a four-year college,” said Charles Black Lance, TRIO Programs Director.CLC TRIO Student Support Services provides direct support for students to successfully complete their Associate of Arts Degree and assist participants in a successful transfer pathway to a 4-year college or university for their bachelor’s degree. The program has been on CLC’s campus since 2001.
TRIO’s individual advising, as well as creating connections with other students, creates an environment for academic and personal success.
