Meet our staff

The TRIO program at Northwest consists of Upward Bound, Upward Bound Math & Science, and Student Support Services. Since 1986, we have had the opportunity to promote educational opportunities while assisting students in their personal journey of earning a higher education degree. The partnerships TRIO has within the Northwest campus community assist in addressing the unique needs of academically capable individuals who are first-generation students and come from families with limited income.<

TRIO creates environments that inspire learning, motivates continuing education, and supports lifelong learning. TRIO offers a comprehensive set of services through three different programs, each targeted at a specific group of individuals from 9th grade through adulthood. Services and activities include academic tutoring, cultural enrichment, financial assistance counseling, summer on-campus residential programs, admissions counseling, instructional assistance, and student mentoring.
