About Us

The Carleton College TRIO/SSS program assists participants in overcoming social, cultural, financial, personal, academic, and other challenges to fully participate in the life of the college and ultimately achieve the goal of graduation.

A crucial aspect of the program is to increase awareness of socioeconomic class issues and challenges at Carleton with the purpose of impacting policies and framing Carleton values, activities, and decisions to help develop an environment where TRIO-eligible students can thrive. 

TRIO House is located at 216 College Street (just to the north of the Weitz Center), and our office hours are Monday–Friday, 8:30 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
