triologo

Focused on goals, financial advisement & more

Nicole and Jeri are among 160 students per year that take part in the TRIO-SSS program at Georgian Court. GCU has made an institutional commitment to admitting high-need, underserved students. TRIO-SSS serves these goals by helping participants progress each year in good academic standing and graduate within four to six years.

The program meets its goals by providing academic instruction and coaching, as well as financial advisement. The TRIO-SSS staff also reviews early warning system reports, midterm reports from professors, and semester grades. Peer mentoring takes place via group workshops.

“We  to the success of every student participating within TRIO-SSS,” said Adrianne Morton, Ph.D., assistant dean for student support services. “The staff and I look for any and every opportunity to assist students, many times beyond academics.

“We must take a holistic approach in working with students in looking at other factors which impact their academics. We do not work in insolation,” said Dr. Morton. “We collaborate and partner with various faculty members, offices and departments across campus. Without such partnerships and collaborations, I do not believe that any underserved student would be able to successfully complete their degree requirements or graduate.”
