TRIO Day is an event held in connection with National TRIO Day.  TRIO Day is meant to focus attention on the needs of disadvantaged young people and adults aspiring to improve their lives, to the necessary investment if they are to become contributing citizens of the country, and to the talent which will be wasted if that investment is not made.  We also focus on TRIO Advocacy and try to reach out to our stakeholders to tell them more about TRIO.  The event held in the spring rotates to a different host institution each year.
