The Center for Educational Partnerships (CEP)

CEP provides outreach and engagement with K-14 students, families, and educators to increase access to higher education. We believe no student should be denied the opportunity to pursue a college degree due to systemic, economic, or social barriers. Our ten CEP programs provide direct service to students and families, professional development for educators and community partners, and engage with K-12 schools/districts, community colleges, and other higher education partners in systemic work to remove barriers to college access for students. This multi-faceted approach is the heart of our work.

Through our comprehensive efforts, CEP strives to make transformative impact on the educational journey of students and communities, fostering a future where the pursuit of a college degree is truly accessible to everyone, regardless of background or circumstance.
