On Tuesday, May 23, 2017, the Trump Administration proposed to eliminate TRIO's Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) and McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement (McNair) programs because "[t]here is limited evidence of effectiveness for both of these programs." The TRIO community knows that these programs work--now we must let the world know! If you are willing to join in this effort, please fill out the information below.
