National TRIO Day
National TRIO Day is a day of celebration, reflection and action around increased access to higher education for disadvantaged students. Federal TRIO
Programs help income-eligible and first-generation students enter college and earn
a college degree.
Every year on the last Saturday of February, high school and college students, teachers, Members of Congress, local officials, TRIO Program staff, participants and alumni and many others:
- Celebrate the positive impact of federal TRIO Programs in our communities throughout the nation.
- Reflect on the importance of educational opportunity programs in creating a fairer society for all Americans.
- Act to protect and further access to higher education for income-eligible and first-generation students
We here at Binghamton are hosting a large, region-wide event for National TRIO Day to Celebrate, Reflect, and Act. Will you join us?
