Greetings, My name is Danny Gissing (They/Them), I work as a TRIO Advisor for Student Support Services (SSS), where I advise a caseload of SSS students. I describe my role as a college "GPS" in which I help my students navigate their journey thru their college experience and support them in any roadblocks they might encounter. I also serve as the TRIO SSS liaison for the TRIO Living Community in the residence halls. Outside of work, I am serving in the Presidential cycle for the Wisconsin Association of Educational Opportunity Program Personnel (WAEOPP). I also enjoy visiting the National Parks around the country, trying new things, and cooking.
