Why do we need Fair-Share?  

The Council for Opportunity in Education (COE) depends on institutional memberships, subscriptions, and personal contributions as its major source of operating revenue. Fair Share is the sharing of budgetary responsibility needed for the Council for Opportunity in Education to operate based on the relative number of TRIO projects in an area. 

Nearly 1,000 member colleges and agencies of COE sponsor initiatives to increase college access and success for low-income, first-generation, under-represented students and students with disabilities in their local communities. We work with them to provide:

  • Needed Program Improvement and Development for more than 3,000 college access and success programs nationwide.
  •  Research and policy analysis through the Pell Institute for the Study of Opportunity in Higher Education to encourage policymakers, educators, and the public to improve educational opportunities and outcomes for low-income, first-generation students and students with disabilities.
  • Advocacy for federally funded programs critical to college access and success including TRIO, GEAR UP, Pell Grants, and other college access and success programs that assist low-income and first-generation students.
  • Professional Development for college access and success professionals—through COE’s Annual Conference, seminars, workshops, video conferences, webinars, and other web-based idea exchanges.
