Recently the government has lowered the funding for programs that were created by the Higher Education Act of 1965. This act was put in place by the U.S. Department of Education and it was meant to give struggling students the opportunity to also attend college. With the budget cuts recently being passed by the government, the TRIO programs at Beloit College and nationwide are in danger of being terminated.We will hold this meeting to raise the awareness of and inform students, faculty, and staff about the potential consequences of the elimination of TRiO programs at Beloit College. At this meeting Aurora Chang will address the campus and discuss the cuts that are going on with the TRIO programs. Beloit College students will discuss their experiences with the TRIO program.followed by a Q & A session to address any questions. Please join us, we can use all the support we can!
This event is free and open to the campus and community.
