The Tri-State Consortium of Opportunity Programs in Higher Education is a not-for-profit association of volunteer members in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.

It represents educational institutions, state education agencies and others involved in the administration of state-supported educational opportunity programs in post-secondary education. 

It is our goal to produce a cadre of educated citizens who will be well versed, sensitive to issues of cultural diversity, and have a heightened sense of social responsibility as they set forth to enhance the quality of life in the respective communities they serve.


The Tri-State Consortium focuses on:

  • removing barriers that prevent disadvantaged students from attaining an undergraduate degree and graduate education
  • increasing institutional and state response to the removal of challenges related to serving a more diverse student population served by opportunity programs
  • improving the capacity of opportunity programs in member states to expand access to higher education and to increase the graduation rate for students in opportunity programs
  • providing professional development, leadership and networking opportunities for continued professional growth and career advancement

The consortium is open to all colleges and universities located in the states of New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. At these institutions, the opportunity programs serve tens of thousands college students from educationally and financially disadvantaged backgrounds.
