An Examination of Factors Affecting Success of E.O.F. [Educational Opportunity Fund] Students.
Smith-Gold, David A.
This paper argues that the problems of minority and disadvantaged students at traditional colleges and universities are different from those students attending junior or community colleges. The goals and guidelines set up by the E.O.F. (Educational Opportunity Fund) Community Advisory Board at Rutgers University in Newark are delineated and criticized. Also included in this paper are two studies designed to investigate what, if any, particular factors could be identified which represented a profile useful in developing admissions criteria for E.O.F. students. From the data it was concluded that there are levels in several basic skills areas below which there is little chance that these students can complete a four-year traditional college program. Depending upon base competency levels for disadvantaged students established at each institution, if students do not possess the necessary minimal skills, they sould be referred to other institutions as well as given some counseling on alternate programs to help them meet their academic, social and employment ambitions.
