TRIO Staff International Exchange
Working with our partners in the UK and the Netherlands, the Council has sponsored four programs to send TRIO directors overseas for professional development since 2002. Typically 10 days in length, the experience allows TRIO professionals to meet U.S. and international colleagues who share goals of improving access to higher education; to learn about other education systems, and to put knowledge about education access and public policy into an international context.
The next TRIO staff exchange is scheduled for 2009.

|“This was a very beneficial experience and has better informed my practice in regards to access issues in a global society... I hope that this is just the beginning for TRIO staff and students to have the opportunity to travel. We are, and will continue to live in a global society; therefore, an understanding of diverse cultures will be a key to success.”
