New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Higher Education.
The Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) of New York State provides grants to institutions of higher learning for the recruitment and education of economically and educationally disadvantaged students who, though not admissible by traditional criteria, have potential for successfully completing a college degree program. This report discusses: (1) the historical background of the program; (2) proposal evaluation procedures, which include the use of a panel of experts in educational opportunity as consultants/readers and consultation with the central staffs of State and City Universities; (3) the general conditions necessary for a successful opportunity program which include a broadening of campus attitudes, flexible course load, sufficient financial aid, and academic support; (4) the HEOP consortia which share staff, allow student transfers and have cross-institutional enrollment; and (5) 1969-70 operational problems and recommendations. Statistical tables on the Program and abstracts of final reports of participating institutions are included in the appendix. (AF)
