The ND TRiO Mission
Since the 1960’s, Notre Dame’s TRiO Programs have been essential to helping thousands of local students lay the foundation for a lifetime of achievement. Through tutoring, mentoring, academic counseling, career exploration, cultural enrichment and community service, today’s students continue to reach higher, dream bigger and expect more of themselves as a result of their experiences with TRiO.
With TRiO doing their part, the student scholars are expected to do theirs, as outlined in the core values statement:
The University of Notre Dame inspires me to REACH HIGHER, DREAM BIGGER and EXPECT MORE of myself as a result of my experiences with TRiO's college access and preparatory programs.
