Event description


Dear Colleagues,

We are excited to announce that this year’s 2019 TRIO Day Central Celebration will be held at Illinois State University on Saturday, February 23, 2019.

The theme for this year’s event is:

G.A.M.E Changers

(Growth Above Marginalized Expectations)

The planning committee is developing an informative, educational and entertaining event that will empower students to reach their full potential. The committee has included workshops and activities that will accommodate students at all levels (secondary and post-secondary). The conference will encourage and deepen student knowledge through engaging workshops aimed at establishing academic success and creating G.A.M.E. Changers to continue trailblazing.
