Welcome TRIO Professionals! 

We are delighted to extend a warm welcome to all TRIO professionals. The SSU TRIO Training program experienced a dynamic and eventful 2023, marked by a series of engaging in-person and hybrid training sessions held nationwide. Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to those who participated in these enriching experiences.

As we step into the 2023-2024 period, we are excited to announce the continuation of our commitment to providing high-quality training opportunities. We will persist in offering both in-person and hybrid training formats for Priority 5 Training as well as Priority 6 Training.

The cornerstone of our TRIO Training program lies in catering to the diverse needs of TRIO professionals, whether they are embarking on their journey or have traversed the path for years. At Sonoma State University, our TRIO Training Team boasts an impressive reservoir of TRIO experience, with members who rank among the most seasoned professionals in the nation. Our pledge remains unwavering in terms of delivering training content that resonates with the challenges faced within the TRIO community. Indeed, our team is tirelessly engaged in curriculum updates that align with the evolving landscape and cater to the requirements of both novices and experts in the field.

This year, we are thrilled to present three dedicated training sessions for Priority 5 (Focusing on Recruiting and Serving Hard-to-Reach Populations) and an additional three sessions for Priority 6 (Focusing on New Directors). The present climate underscores the significance of TRIO Training more than ever. Our community seeks a space to rejuvenate skills, seek guidance, exchange narratives, and experience a strong sense of support. Rest assured, our team is committed to being your steadfast companion throughout this journey.

We warmly encourage you to reach out with any inquiries you may have regarding our forthcoming training sessions. Anticipation is building as we eagerly look forward to the opportunity of connecting with you, either face-to-face or in the virtual realm.
