Nyquist, Ewald B.
The status of the Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) is reviewed in terms of enrollments, program financing and financial aid, academic programs, and measurement of outcomes. Separate documents report on the 1973-1974 activities for private-sector institutions funded under HEOP, for the City University Search for Education, Elevation and Knowledge (SEEK) and College Discovery programs, and for the State University Educational Opportunity Program. The programs are directed at the educationally and economically disadvantaged at private colleges and universities in New York State. Details are offered in this report on inmate education, contractual agreements, personnel, staff patterns, admissions criteria, racial composition of enrolled students, pre-freshman summer experience, academic year supportive services, grades and credit, accumulation rates, choice of major, separation, retention and graduation, student profiles, and specific studies and research at several institutions. Implications and recommendations for the program are reviewed. (LBH)
