Opportunity Turns 40
Muccio, Maria; Pierre-Vil, Samienta
New England Journal of Higher Education, Jun 2016
The New England Educational Opportunity Association (NEOA) drew more than 250 TRIO and college access professionals to its 40th annual conference in Massachusetts earlier this spring. NEOA's mission is to advocate for access to and success in postsecondary education for low-income individuals, "first-generation" college students, and students with disabilities--and to develop the skills and knowledge of educational opportunity professionals working with this population. The 40th annual conference of NEOA facilitated workshops that covered financial literacy, academic coaching, reengaging alumni, effective student engagement and the social justice approach to programming. This article provides a brief overview of the awards presented at the conference.
