The Office of Federal TRIO provides academic assistance and support services to promising youth, adult learners and Wayne State University students who have been historically underrepresented in higher education due to family income, academic preparation or first generation college status.

The mission of the WSU Office of Federal TRIO is to form partnerships that successfully improve student learning and engagement. These learning experiences produce outcomes that empower TRIO students to overcome academic, class, social and cultural barriers to success in higher education.
