The hybrid model

Trio's hybrid college model combines an accredited online degree program from Southern New Hampshire University with coaching support and expertise from Duet, the longest-standing hybrid college.

Students get their degrees from SNHU. Trio Fellows are trained to become site leaders with help from Duet coaches and learn in person at the Duet site in Boston.

An accredited private, non-profit university with a physical campus in Manchester, NH. One of the most innovative universities in the country, SNHU is a pioneer in developing and offering an online, project-based, Competency Based Education (CBE) degree program​.

SNHU provides all curriculum, assessment, and other academic services to students enrolled in degree programs at all Trio-launched sites.

Based in Boston, MA, Duet is the oldest and largest SNHU Community Partner Site in the country. Duet provides intensive coaching and support to students enrolled in SNHU's CBE degree programs. ​

All of our site leaders complete a residency training program at Duet where they will learn best practices for managing an SNHU Community Partners Site.
