The Center for Educational Opportunity Programs (CEOP) supports a wide spectrum of learners and provides educational information, counseling, academic instruction, tutoring, assistance in applying for financial aid, and supportive encouragement to both students and their families. While student financial aid programs help students overcome financial barriers to higher education, CEOP helps students overcome academic, economic, social, and cultural barriers to higher education. CEOP programs serve students at the University of Kansas, as well as youth, adults, and veterans in the Lawrence, Topeka, and Kansas City areas. CEOP partners with more than 70 community agencies and schools in the region, including school districts in Lawrence, Topeka, and Kansas City, Kansas, as well as the Kansas City, Kansas Housing Authority, the Kansas City Career Center, the KU Center for Research on Learning, and the Dwight D. Eisenhower VA Medical Center in Leavenworth.
