The Way CEOP Works

CEOP's five bold steps to highlight the way we are building a legacy of learners and leaders through a commitment to educational equity.

1. Pursue funding opportunities from state, federal and private sector entities to support, enhance, and expand services to participants and to the growth of the Center.

2. Advocate and improve visibility of programs by leveraging data and strategic dissemination.

3. Share our expertise through trainings, symposia and conference presentations.

4. Develop and maintain partnerships to provide accessible, holistic and innovative programs.

5. Model our expertise in social justice work.
