TRIO: The unwritten legacy

Carolyne J. White, Noreen Sakiestewa, Clarence Shelley

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this article, the authors argue for and operationalize the adoption of auto-ethnographic research methods to explore the impact of TRIO participation on the development of social, political, and professional capacities among educators who have been students and staff members of the programs. They invite the reader on a journey of reacquaintance with their individual educational histories, presented in the form of a textual collage. Through these reflections, they explore the intersections of cultural and racial/ethnic identity and discuss the implications of understanding such histories and identities for the administration of TRIO programs today.
