​Friends and visitors,

Greetings and welcome to DMACC Urban Campus TRIO/Student Support Services program!

For over two decades the TRIO/Student Support Services program at DMACC Urban Campus has had the privilege of serving many students by providing academic, cultural, career-oriented, and social activities to help them continue their education and achieve academic success.

I am thrilled to be part of such a valuable academic program designed to encourage students to enroll in college, successfully complete degree programs,​ and transfer to four-year institutions. As Program Director, I feel fortunate to be able to help students overcome cultural and educational barriers to higher education and attain their personal and academic goals. Our DMACC TRIO/SSS team is committed to your success and we are ready to do all we can to support your efforts; therefore, we are dedicated to promote self-advocacy and leadership. Our Academic Advising​ Coaches can work with you on nearly any academic concern.

Our internet site is intended to help you know about our staff and the services we provide. Please stop by our offices to visit in person any time.

Wishing you success,
Dr. Norma Pérez-Kahler, Director
TRI​O/Student Support Services
