The Mid-Eastern Association of Educational Opportunity Program Personnel (MEAEOPP) has selected Ross Radish, the University’s assistant dean of students and director of student engagement, as the ‘TRIO Achiever’ for the state of Delaware.
As ‘TRIO Achiever’, Radish represents the success of Delaware’s TRIO programs. TRIO includes six outreach and support programs, including Talent Search and Upward Bound, targeted to serve and assist low-income, first-generation college students, and students with disabilities to progress through the academic pipeline from middle school to post-baccalaureate programs.
Along with Achievers from five other districts/states, Radish will receive the award during the TRIO Achievers Luncheon at the MEAOPP Annual Conference, March 29 through April 1, in Virginia Beach, Va.
MEAEOPP is a regional association of educational opportunity personnel from Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia. MEAEOPP's mission is to assist low-income, first generation and traditionally under represented students in overcoming the economic, physical, academic and social barriers that make accessibility to higher education difficult, if not impossible.
