TRIO/Student Support Services
Student Support Services (SSS) is a federally-funded TRIO program that provides opportunities for academic development, assists students in meeting basic college requirements, and serves to motivate students towards the successful completion of their post-secondary education. SSS seeks to close the opportunity and achievement gap, and increase the retention and graduation rates of underserved and under-represented students. The SSS program is committed to the success of first-generation, low-income, and/or students with disabilities (physical or learning) who have academic need and the motivation to achieve their maximum potential in higher education.
The SSS Program serves 160 students, which allows staff to work intensely with students in the areas of academic choice. One-on-one interaction builds personal and professional relationships with students. The SSS Staff serves as advocates, navigators, supporters, and resources to our students. In our positive and supportive academic community, SSS collaborates with students to strengthen their self-efficacy as they strive towards the successful completion of their post-secondary education and help students to make the transition from one level of higher education to the next.
TRIO/Student Support Services/ Administrative, Academic, and Computer Lab services are located in Gurley Hall GH-1137, GH1139, GH1136, and GH1140. Students may call TRIO/Student Support Services at 505-863-7751. TRIO/SSS is 100% funded by the Department of Education (Higher Education Act of 1965 Section 402D).
