Abstract

This article contends that TRIO's national acclaim says little about why individual TRIO programs have proven so effective. To identify the particular characteristics that have resulted in these programs' success with their target populations, the unique experiences of a university-based Special Student Services (SSS) TRIO program were examined from the perspectives of program staff. Staff held that their program was effective because it was responsive, synergistic, supportive, and successful. This investigation explores these four attributes as causative factors leading to the program's status as one of the most popular and most highly utilized student service programs on campus.
