Kathy J. TrotterTRiO is proud to introduce the program's newest retention specialist, Kathy J. Trotter. Her responsibilities include:

  • Supporting and encouraging positive behaviors that result in students' successful retention, graduation, transfer and graduation from a four-year institution in a timely manner.
  • Assisting students who are experiencing academic difficulty by helping them develop a plan for success.

"I am devoted to student success and look forward to helping students excel in the TRiO program," said Trotter. "Whether it be studying, testing or time management skills, I am a valuable resource ready to help students."

TRiO also offers a comprehensive tutoring service for program participants. Professional tutors and supplemental instruction group sessions are available. In the supplemental instruction sessions, group leaders help students improve their oral communication skills and their ability to explain a concept. These group sessions help students develop a sense of community and create a support unit that allows for sharing of ideas and contributes to the improvement of each leader's performance.

TRiO's professional tutors help students help themselves. Tutors encourage high levels of thinking while they help students improve and increase their attitudes toward subject areas. Tutors also help students improve their academic performance and personal growth. Currently, math tutors area available.
