The TRIO FESP office has moved to Room 3530 in Sangren Hall

We are no longer in room 2302 of Sangren and is now located in the Merze Tate Center of Sangren Hall.

The Merze Tate Center was named after Vernie Merze Tate who was the first African-American graduate of Western Michigan University (formerly known as Western Michigan Teachers College). She graduated with honors from the teaching program and from then has made amazing accomplishments within the education system as the first African-American woman. When she died in 1996 she left millions to institutions of higher education that looked beyond her race and gender.
