The Central Kansas Educational Opportunity Center began offering FREE educational services to Kansas residents in 1998. CKEOC is 100% funded by the U.S. Department of Education.
Barton Community College is the host institution for CKEOC.
The CKEOC is a TRIO program that evolved from the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, in response to the administration's War on Poverty.
