Romney, Miles C.; Okedara, Joseph T.
Section 1 of this report on programs for the disadvantaged in the Oregon State System of Higher Education defines the term disadvantaged and summarizes the barriers to higher education experienced by them. The next section reviews briefly the values that underlie the development of these programs and suggests some issues that must be considered in reviewing the programs for the disadvantaged. The third section reviews some of the efforts made, steps taken and mechanisms used by institutions to organize effective programs, and establishes the mechanisms for institutional evaluation of these programs. The fourth section reviews the general characteristics of State Systems Programs for the Disadvantaged. These programs are Upward Bound, the High School Equivalency Program, the Three Percent Program and the BOOST Program, and discusses the operation of these programs at the 7 state institutions involved.
