On an annual basis, the Pell Institute conducts the TRIO Compensation Survey to assess the levels at which institutions and organizations compensate college outreach professionals. The survey collects and compares compensation data by program, position, institutional division, institutional type, geographical location, demographic characteristics, educational level, length of employment, and employment status.

The 2019/2020 Compensation Survey is currently being administered. If you are a TRIO staff, please consider completing the compensation survey; the link is available below and posted on COE’s Community of Practice webpage. The Pell Institute will share survey results with TRIO staff who complete the survey and those with a COE membership in Spring/Summer 2022.
