Powered By Passion: How Staff at NC State’s TRIO Programs Make a Difference for Students

Each day, the staff who administer NC State’s TRIO programs bring their expertise and passion to fulfill a vital purpose: supporting hundreds of first-generation and financially under-resourced students as they prepare for college and helping them thrive once they arrive.
