Director's Message

Welcome to TRIO Student Support Services!

It is my pleasure to welcome you to our webpage. I am Dr. Saadia Lagarde Porché, the new director and counselor for TRIO Student Support Services (TRIO SSS) at Los Angeles City College. I have a number of years of experience working in community colleges, specifically in equity programs. At SSS, we are committed to your success and work with you in partnership to ensure that you have the resources and tools necessary to successfully complete an associate’s degree and transfer requirements.

Please review our webpages for the most up-to-date information.  We have planned a number of informative workshops, university tours and cultural events of interest to SSS students.

I would love to meet all of our SSS students; please drop-by the office when you can to say hello. Remember to complete at least two counseling contacts each term and to touch bases with me if you would like to make any changes to your current class schedule or educational plan.

Best wishes for a successful semester and academic year!


Dr. Saadia Lagarde Porché
