Sunday — Wednesday • March 11-14, 2018 • Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill • Washington, D.C.
The Council for Opportunity in Education's 38th Annual Policy Seminar affords the TRIO and GEAR UP communities the opportunity to help educate Members of the 115th Congress, congressional staff, and Trump Administration officials about the history and the success of TRIO and GEAR UP. More importantly, this event gives participants a chance to represent the interests of low-income and first‐generation students and veterans, adult learners, and students with disabilities in the policy arena. Come share your stories of success. Stories about real students can make a difference!
With your help and the help of your alumni, we can build support for TRIO and GEAR UP and expand services to assist a greater number of disadvantaged students.
Identify and Bring Your TRIO Alumni to the Policy Seminar. Plan to bring TRIO college graduates to the Policy Seminar! Alumni participation at this event will give graduates the skills they need to be TRIO advocates at the local, state, and national levels.
