TRiO Mission Statement
TRiO/SSS is a student support services program that is funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The mission of the program is to increase college retention and graduation rates of students eligible for the program as well as increasing the transfer rates for these students from Valley College to 4-year universities. In response to this mission, we will provide academic support services to students who meet certain criteria determined by the institution and are willing to commit themselves to the requirements of LAVC’s TRiO/SSS program.
The college ensures equitable access to and participation in the TRiO/SSS project for all participants and staff members. LAVC has committed facilities, equipment, supplies, personnel and other resources to the TRiO/SSS project
