History

Horizons Student Support Services is a federally funded TRIO Program that was authorized by the Higher Education Amendments of 1968. The name TRIO stands for the original three programs that were initiated by the U.S. Department of Education and were the first national college access and retention programs to address the serious social and cultural barriers to education in America.  TRIO began as part of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s War on Poverty. The TRIO programs were originally established by the federal government in 1965 to ensure equal educational opportunity for all Americans, regardless of race, ethnic background, or economic circumstances.

Horizons Student Support Service has been serving Purdue University since 1978.
