About CMEO and CMEO Programs

Since 1991, Boise State University’s Center for Multicultural and Educational Opportunities, housed in the College of Education, has been developing outreach initiatives that support and encourage students who are pursuing academic achievement.

It is the mission of the Center for Multicultural and Educational Opportunities (CMEO) at Boise State University to encourage and facilitate academic achievement and personal growth among under-represented groups in our schools and communities.

There are fifteen (15) federally funded programs within the Center that guide students from pre-college enrollment to post-secondary graduation. CMEO improves the academic achievements of all student populations and addresses student success issues that are vital to the mission of Boise State University. The programs provide a pipeline of support for students from populations of low income and other non-traditional college attending backgrounds and focus on collaborating with each other and building creative partnerships with both academic affairs and student affairs at Boise State University.
