Our Mission - The mission of the KU Talent Search/TRIO Program is to empower our participants to reach their college and career dreams.
"Education is the key to opportunity in our society, and the equality of educational opportunity must be the birthright of every citizen." - Lyndon B. Johnson, 36th President of the United States, helped found TRIO Programs in 1964
