Giving back and helping others
Since its founding in 1997, CEPA has formed many successful relationships with a variety of organizations worldwide that support its mission in different capacities.
One of these relationships is with the CEPA Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The CEPA Foundation was founded in 2013 to advance and enrich CEPA’s education abroad programming and its CSR initiatives in developing countries.
Through collaborative efforts like this, CEPA is making quality academic experiences accessible to all.
