TRIO Student Support Services-Disability Tempe

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Arizona State University, at Tempe campus, requests funding for the TRIO Student Support Services-Disability (SSS-D) to provide beneficial service to the campuses' large number of students with disabilities, which amounts to over 3,500 students. The program will serve 270 participants per year and offer intensive academic support services to assist student participants towards retention and successful completion of a four-year baccalaureate degree. The SSS-D will offer services to individuals that augment existing university services by addressing the students holistic needs in terms of instructional, counseling and experiential support.

Instructional services will include the following: needs assessment, tutoring in writing, mathematics, critical thinking, computer-based learning, small work groups, and individualized higher order thinking skills. Further, emotional support such as assistance with personal development, financial aid, mentoring, and peer support groups will be provided. Experiential support will include cultural enrichment activities, summer transitional programs, career and graduate school preparation, conference attendance and research experiences, all offered to help students grow through new experiences.

Institutional commitment for the SSS-D is strong. ASU Tempe provides collaborative support from departments throughout the university such as financial aid and career preparation. In addition, the project is supplied with ample space, which is centrally located, and includes private offices for project staff and computer labs and study areas for students.

The assurance of success for this project is greatly enhanced by Arizona State University. Due to this solid commitment, the applicant feels confident to address both of the competitive preference priorities.
