About Us

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.

Mission Statement

The Tri-State Consortium has a four-fold purpose:
  • To improve access to, and the quality of, higher education for students who are economically disadvantaged and academically underprepared in the states of New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania;
  • To stimulate conversation and share common concerns and techniques among various opportunity program personnel;
  • To increase the effectiveness of these programs by strengthening the case of support; and
  • To ensure the survival of Opportunity Programs in the Tri-State region and beyond.
