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. At these institutions, the opportunity programs serve tens of thousands college students from educationally and financially disadvantaged backgrounds.

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.
