The Council for Opportunity in Education Announces New Partnership with the Institute of International Education Center for Access and Equity
In this collaboration, the Center and COE will bolster existing and new programs, including the Center’s American Passport Project and COE’s study abroad initiatives. The partnership seeks to integrate study abroad and international education into established TRIO programs, exposing more first-generation college students to educational and financial opportunities abroad.
If you are a student support services professional, thank you. You are an unsung hero for all the good that you do, and surely you know by now that COE has your back.
Through strategic collaborations, we work to strengthen quality, opportunity and access to education for all American students — the next generation of global leaders.
