The TRIO Teacher Preparation Program

The TRIO Teacher Preparation Program is a high impact academic support unit located within Boise State University’s Center for Multicultural and Educational Opportunities. Our physical location is the Education Building, Rooms 404 and 428. The program is designed to enroll, serve, and graduate 144 first-generation students, limited income students, and/or students with a documented disability into the teaching profession. Program services include:  advising, individualized tutoring for lower division coursework, high quality Praxis I and II assistance, scholarship and financial aid support, academic development skills (writing, math, and study strategies), career and soft skills development, and various student engagement opportunities.
