39th Annual Policy Seminar

Sunday — Wednesday • March 24-27, 2019 • Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill • Washington, D.C.

Building on Our Base, Forging New Connections

ManualThe Council for Opportunity in Education's 39th Annual Policy Seminar affords the TRIO and GEAR UP communities the opportunity to help educate Members of the 116th Congress, congressional staff, and Trump Administration officials about the history and the success of TRIO and GEAR UP. More importantly, this event gives participants a chance to represent the interests of low‐income and first‐generation students and veterans, adult learners, and students with disabilities in the policy arena. Come share your stories of success. Stories about real students can make a difference!

With your help and the help of your alumni, we can build support for TRIO and GEAR UP and expand services to assist a greater number of disadvantaged students.
