Welcome TRIO Professionals! 

As we head toward the end of 2021, I think it is safe to say it is a year never to be forgotten.  It was my first year as the TRIO Training Director for Sonoma State and it was both challenging and rewarding.  We hosted 3 virtual trainings using the platform SOCIO and 4 in-person trainings in Boston, MA and San Diego, CA.  We are happy to announce that in 2022, we will return to our preferred method of training delivery - on-site and in-person! .  We will, however, offer virtual attendance for several of our trainings to continue to accommodate those who can not travel.

The TRIO Training program exists to meet the needs of TRIO professionals, new and seasoned.  Sonoma State University’s TRIO Training Team has an astonishing 330+ years of TRIO experience, and some of the most seasoned professional in the nation.  I am pleased to lead this team as we accept the challenges of a POST-COVID world (almost).  Our team is known across the country for offering personal, engaging, and bountiful training sessions.  Our commitment is to continue to provide training that is reflective of the challenges that exist in the TRIO community - in fact, we are working diligently to update curriculum and delivery for 2022.

We will offer 7 training sessions this year – 4 for Priority 5 (Hard to Reach Populations) and 3 for Priority 6 (New Director’s Training) through in-person and hybrid events.   There has never been a better time for TRIO Training – our community needs a place to refresh skills, ask questions, share stories, and feel supported.  Our team is here for you.  Please do not hesitate to reach out with your questions about our upcoming training and we look forward to seeing you in 2022!

In TRIO love,

Shannon Smith
Director of TRIO Training
Sonoma State University
