TRiO Student Support Services


Vision

Every participant will experience the victory of completing post-secondary education.

Mission

To provide support and services, increase retention and graduation rates at UACCH, and help participants make the transition to the next level of higher education.

Student Support Services is designed to meet the needs of low-income, first generation college students, and students with disabilities enrolled in the institution. The basic purpose of the project will be to provide support services to these students which will enhance their academic skills, increase their retention and graduation rates, and, as appropriate, facilitate their entrance into upper-level and professional programs. In addition, the college will develop an institutional climate supportive of these students.

Support services to be provided to eligible students will include academic advisement and support, instructional programs to include courses in reading, mathematics, English/Writing, study skills/resources, foreign language, academic tutoring, personal counseling, financial assistance, and a variety of support activities to include career counseling, admissions and financial assistance to transfer to four year institutions or professional schools. In addition, the campus climate component contains such activities as cultural events and “shop-talk” sessions with key University of Arkansas Community College at Hope staff and faculty members and “life management” workshops, and school/mentoring to build self esteem.
