What is Educational Support Services?
Educational Supportive Services (ESS) is a program that helps first-generation, income-limited and disabled students earn undergraduate degrees. ESS students can take advantage of one-on-one tutoring, workshops (academic, financial, career, etc.), cultural events, peer mentoring and more—all designed to make sure students improve academic success, graduate and achieve their life goals. ESS is funded by a TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) grant from the Department of Education.
How Do We Accomplish This?
Our strategy is to provide a well-trained, knowledgeable, and sensitive staff. Our professional staff is always available to help you. We believe in students helping students, so we hire and train students to work as tutors and peer mentors. These students have learned how to be successful in college and spend their time helping others learn the ropes.
