The Association for Equality and Excellence in Education (AEEE) is one of ten regional associations recognized by the Council for Opportunity in Education that is committed to advancing the ideals of equal educational access for first-generation, low-income, and disabled students.
Our association is comprised of seven districts within the states of New York and New Jersey. AEEE’s purpose is to provide support and training for employees of Federal TRIO Programs within our region and others concerned with providing equal access to education, a forum for collegiality, professional development, and all other activities that pertain to the interests and well-being of their programs and students.
The Association for Equality and Excellence in Education (AEEE) is a dynamic, service association whose mission is to:
• Bring together into a community those persons who have an active interest in or who are professionally involved in broadening accessibility for formal secondary and postsecondary students and helping them achieve success in those environments;
• Coordinate efforts with other organizations with like purposes and goals;
• Promote, encourage, and assist in research evaluation, programmatic and fiscal planning and training to explore issues involving the accessibility and success of students in secondary and postsecondary endeavors;
• Develop and disseminate timely and meaningful responses to issues and concerns affecting the educational resources and environment of first-generation, low-income, and disabled students.
Federal TRiO programs continue to face numerous challenges and as an association it is our responsibility to join forces and serve as an advocate for additional funding and support of education opportunity programs. This is accomplished through the education and training of TRiO program administrators within the states of New York and New Jersey and supporting the efforts of the Council for Opportunity in Education.
The Association for Equality and Excellence in Educationis committed to providing professional development activities that:
Promote the accessibility and affordability of higher education
Provide timely and accurate information to the TRiO community,
