In Service to Equity with Authenticity
Teresa Thompson-Pinckney, Ed.D.

As a first-generation college graduate, my journey is a testament to the transformative power of TRiO and other access programs. I'm dedicated to ensuring that students have the opportunity to graduate high school and navigate successfully, their journey through college. My path was illuminated through participation in TRiO Talent Search and TRiO Student Support Services. During my 25 years in higher education, I had the privilege of directing multiple TRiO programs and a GEAR UP Partnership Program. I am a living success story, demonstrating that with the support of college access and Student Success, one can overcome formidable obstacleies. I have served as a TRIO Training consultant for Priority 1, Priority 2, Priority 5, and Priority 6. My mission is clear: To support the TRiO and college access & student success community, authentically, by unlocking opportunity and championing equity for educational excellence. Together, we can make college degree accessible and achievable for all!

Addressing equity and improving student outcomes for Black, Latino, and Indigenous students, poverty-impacted students, and first-generation students.
