Watch the tenth installment of Conversations with Wayne State University!
Mildred Gaddis sits down with Darrell Dawsey, Associate Director, Community Communications for Wayne State University, and Dr. Henry L. Robinson, Senior Director of the Office of Federal TRIO at Wayne State. The three discuss how the Federal TRIO program provides academic assistance and support services to promising youth, adult learners and Wayne State University students who have been historically underrepresented in higher education due to economic deprivation, poor academic preparation and/or first generation college status. While student financial aid programs help students overcome financial barriers to higher education, TRIO helps students overcome class, social and cultural barriers to higher education.
