Programs conducted by the City University of New York (CUNY) for helping disadvantaged youth prepare for and succeed in college are described. An Urban Center program runs several projects, notably a College Adapter Program which helps high school students who are not qualified for college admission. The community colleges provide 2-year terminal courses with occupational specializations, and Search for Education, Evaluation and Knowledge (SEEK) offers counseling, remedial, and tutorial service and stipends for students of high native ability. The primary goals of the College Discovery and Developmental Program (CDDP) are (1) to identify ninth-grade students whose potential is suitable for higher education but whose school records indicate achievements too low for college competition, and (2) to increase academic motivation through a 3-year high school program. A CDDP bibliography is included. [Not available in hard copy due to the marginal legibility of original document.] (KG)
