Boise State University President Bob Kustra met with the TRIO Student Success Program (SSP) peer mentors this morning at the Student Union Building to support their efforts and share advice.
President Kustra shared his personal experience as a first-generation student, his career as Boise State, and ‘mentored the mentors’ during the hour-long event.
Natalee Garduño, a TRIO SSP peer mentor, said President Kustra “knows how to connect to everyone in the room and listens wholeheartedly”.
TRIO SSP is a federal grant program through the Department of Education, and supports retention and graduation of 180 first generation and/or limited income students at Boise State. To learn more about TRIO SSP, visit the website: https://www.boisestate.edu/education-trs/
