In the wake of an election that exposed and awakened widespread national divisiveness, we are blessed and grateful to be working with institutions of higher education. At this critical time, our shared work is more important than ever.
Throughout history, higher education has been called upon to shed light amidst heated national debates. Our colleges and universities have shown leadership in the past, and we are confident that they will do so moving forward.
We are proud to represent a multi-racial, multi-ethnic coalition of students and professionals on our campuses and in our communities that advocate for educational opportunity across class and cultural lines. The great opportunity our country offers is to afford all people, regardless of background, color or financial means, a chance at the American dream. That is what has fueled the efforts of COE for the last 35 years.
The Council for Opportunity in Education would like to wish you and yours a happy Thanksgiving.
