Institutional Membership to the Council for Opportunity in Education is the backbone of the organization. Thanks to strong backing of our members, the Council for Opportunity in Education pursues advocacy, professional development, research, and information that is all focused on helping disadvantaged students enroll in and complete postsecondary education.
