The Secret to Our Students' Success

As the staff of UC Riverside's TRIO Scholars programs, we are focused on our students' success. That involves implementing, administering and evaluating TRIO Scholars programs and services. Our goals are based on the retention, graduation and success of first-generation and low-income students here at UCR.

The TRIO Scholars community isn't our students' only form of support. We strive to connect them to multiple resources. Faculty, administrators, staff, alumni and community leaders provide a cohesive support team and network to maximize our students' success.
