About CeO


Since 1993, the Center for Educational Opportunity (CeO) has endeavored to ensure equal access/opportunity, support socio-economic mobility, improve financial literacy, and foster a supportive institutional climate. The CeO staff creates a high-impact learning community that both nurtures and challenges, while helping students acclimate and connect to resources and campus life.


The Center for Educational Opportunity (CeO) fosters the success of undergraduate first-generation, income-eligible, and/or students with disabilities. CeO’s goal is to support students’ engagement, achievement, and graduation.
