Welcome to Iowa TRIO!
Iowa TRiO is a group of colleges and universities (26 at last count) in the state of Iowa that embody our nation's commitment to the dream of education for all Americans, regardless of race, ethnic background or economic circumstances.
We are a part of the federal TRiO programs. TRiO includes seven outreach and support programs targeted to serve and assist low-income, first-generation college students, and students with disabilities to progress through the academic pipeline from middle school to postbaccalaureate programs. The programs include Student Support Services, Educational Talent Search, Upward Bound, and others.
For more information on Iowa TRiO - see the Iowa TRIO link on the left.
This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the Talent Search program, which has guided more than 11 million students and their families through the college preparation and application process. Talent Search grew out of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s Higher Education Act (HEA), established with the goal of seeing that “no American talent is wasted.” HEA also celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year. The HEA is arguably the most significant piece of legislation governing American higher education. These anniversaries, coming in the same year, make 2015 a milestone in the history of higher education.
